also just to prove how flawed your "the one with the best car always wins" argument is, all first 4 guys of the championship this year (won last sunda by vettel) started their careers on weaker teams before slowly moving up to better teams.
You probably meant Button as the fourth(was fifth),cos Hamilton was 4th and he started in 'slightly' better team than these 4 guys

oh i thought button was forth and not fifth. still 4 of the top 5 including the entire podium came from weaker teams. looks pretty good to me to be honest. and hamilton only started on mclaren because by 11 he was already destroying the national kart scene in the UK.
