Jense unimpressed by Lewis' driving

Jense unimpressed by Lewis' driving

Jenson Button believes Lewis Hamilton tried too many dangerous moves during Sunday's German Grand Prix.

Starting P20 on the grid, Hamilton charged up the field and it wasn't too long before he was into the top 10 and clashing with the likes of Kimi Raikkonen and Button.

First some debris from Raikkonen's Ferrari went flying off as Hamilton muscled his way past and then he made contact with Button as he tried to duck past him at the hairpin.

This time a piece of Hamilton's front wing came off, but he managed to get the better of his former McLaren team-mate on the next lap and eventually went on to finish third.

The Mercedes driver admitted afterwards that his collision with Button was due to his "bad judgment", but the McLaren man wasn't impressed by his driving.

"Why would we let anyone through? I don't know if you've noticed but a lot of drivers do that line to get a good exit from the corner," Button, who finished P8, is quoted as saying by Autosport.

"I think the problem with Lewis is he expected me to let him past.

"I don't think I'm the only person he drove into today. It's strange, when the car's so much quicker you'd think he wouldn't get into so [many] fights but there you go.

"He drove into my rear wheel, that's all I've got to say and I don't know much else about it.

"I'm out there doing my race. It would make it boring if we all let him past when he was coming through the field."
