At first glance Hamilton seems to have got the most out of his career. Whereas Alonso won two world titles, the Briton managed to be the best of the season no less than seven times. According to Button this doesn't mean that Hamilton is the most complete.
Button believes Alonso has the most qualities as a driver. "I can only compare them to when they were my teammates. Fernando was the more complete driver, because he always found a way to be faster than you," Button judged in the interview.
Qualities of Hamilton clear
However, it doesn't mean that Button has no respect for the current number two in the world championship. "Lewis was a very direct and fast teammate. In practice, he wasn't in a good position. He was often three or four tenths off and I don't think he did that on purpose. In qualifying, he was always right there and found the right lap."
