Season analysis after Korea

Button has been very competitive in the second half of the season although has had some unlucky retirements. His race win in Belgium is extremely unlikely to be repeated in dry weather as it was largely due to finding a good setup after such little running in free practise. Button usually only wins in unusual circumstances. With most his wins since 2010 coming in the wet, rely upon rain before betting on victory. Button mastery at handling the tires is renowned, making him one to watch for live betting as tire strategy plays out. He’s managed two podiums in the last five races whilst coming 4th in Japan and was 2nd in Italy before a retirement for mechanical error. Button is worth a bet on the podium currently. Money could be made on top 6 given finishes given the competitive the McLaren but given their mechanical difficulties low odds low payout top 10 betting is best avoided.

Season analysis after Hungary

Like his team mate, 2012 has been an inconsistent season for Button. After Button's win Australia to start the season Button had a string of terrible of results. The McLaren started to perform well again after the upgrades brought to Germany, with Button taking a podium and top six position. After his substantial lull for the six races between Bahrain and Silverstone, expect Button to once again challenge for victory.

Button usually only wins in unusual circumstances. With most his wins since 2010 coming in the wet, rely upon rain before betting on victory. Button mastery at handling the tires is renowned, making him one to watch for live betting as tire strategy plays out. Last season, Button made the podium in 12 of 19 races, making a podium a safer bet than victory for a dry race. He has not been on Pole in 3 years so focus on race victories and podiums.

Button is so far behind in the championship that even with his current boost in performance he stands no chance of being crowned champion this year.
