Happy to see a driver making it to F1 on Talent and nothing else. Good luck my friend @svandoorne

McLaren should do what they did in 1974 next season: run a third #F1 car backed by Yardley, so they can keep Button AND promote Vandoorne

Maximum respect to Jenson. But Vandoorne more than deserves to be on the grid. #f1

Along the way, though, @JensonButton’s always been a great bloke. Not disappeared up his own arse, like some.
