Jenson Button, Lewis Hamilton, McLaren, 2012

What did Lewis Hamilton have to say to Jenson Button which prompted a wide grin from his team mate?

After three years together, McLaren’s ‘dream team’ will be broken up as Hamilton heads to Mercedes.

Since Jenson Button joined the team in 2010 the pair have been very closely matched. Hamilton has out-scored Button by the narrow margin of 609 points to 603. They’ve got six races left as team mates to sort that out.

      Lewis: Hey JB, I’m really…you know…gonna miss you, I mean the real reason It didn’t work out with Nicole the first time was because…I have strong feelings for you…I guess what I’m saying is…*takes deep breathe* I love you JB and I’m leaving because I can’t handle seeing you with Jessica anymore, it’s tearing me apart inside.
      Jenson: MUHAHAHA! TEHEHE!

    20. “You moved to a new team; gonna make hell a lot more money than me and yet, I can’t stop grinning mate. Why is that?”

    21. Button: “..and then they said ‘he’s going to Mercedes!’

      “You were just a poor black guy; now you’re a rich silver grey pilot !”

    29. Button: “You gonna drive a WHAT?”

    30. ‘Don’t you listen to Jessica for advice? I always go where Nicole wants me to’

    31. Lewis: I’ll go to Mercedes to win championships!
      Button: What? Haha!

    32. Lewis: Jens, ya reckon Merc GP are going to have a championship winning car next season?

    33. Button: “I’m not sarcastic, I’m just happy for I mean you”

    34. Jenson: So what made you decide to sign the contract with Mercedes?
      Lewis: Well, I had a long chat with Ross and the team, and they told me that they will be able to offer me more chances to win the title, and a better car.
      Jenson: *Thinks back over his seven years with the team*….*Big grin*

    35. Jenson: you wanna know why i’m a championship contender next year, while you won’t be?
      Lewis: Why would that be?
      Jenson: because i’ll still be Tooned in, while you’ll be Tooning out.

    36. Lewis – season 2 of “Tooned” was the last frickin’ straw!

    37. Lewis – “Ross Brawn said i can tweet pictures of him in the bathroom so i signed straight away”

    38. hey Lewis, they’ve scrapped the 2014 engine regs. umadbro? hahahahaha!

    39. Lewis: “What was that message you sent me earlier saying I was going to have a great season next year?”
      Jenson: “Oh sorry, that was meant to go to Sergio.”

      1. Like this one :)

    40. Jenson: “Hey Lewis, check out my p*nis!”

      1. Olivier Panis?

    41. Lewis: “yes its true, there is a first for everything, Eddy Jordan was right all along!”

    42. Hamilton: ‘Then guess what he said! He said Nico and myself would be equals!’

    43. Button: “So, I can keep your stuff?”

    44. Jenson (speaking in Morgan Freeman’s voice): You’re leaving the fastest team on the grid, force the most successful driver in the history of the sport into retirement, take over his spot in a team that’s struggling to finish in the top 5… and you think you can accomplish what he couldn’t? Good luck.

    45. Button: See its me how got the last laugh
      Lewis :Maybe it’s because I’m black…

    46. Lewis : Look, JB, Me and Britney over there might be sharing a garage next year but that is ALL that we’ll be sharing so wipe that grin off your face.

    47. Jenson: First, I convince Massa and Maldanado that I’ll put in a good word for your seat a MacLaren. Then I sabotage your car for 3 seasons. And Jessica said you were too good of a driver for me to ruin. Just look what happened to my other teammates careers! The 5 bucks I won from the bet was totally worth it!! Hahahahahahahahhaahahah!

      Lewis: What a D*@&…..

    48. “……. so I jokingly said to Norbert “triple it and I’ll sign on the dotted line”. And he did!!”

    49. Lewis – “I should have a championship winning car at Mercedes next year”

    50. Heeeeeeere’s Jenson!

    51. Everyone thinks I am listen to music but I can actually breath through these headphones

    52. Lewis Hamilton: “Nicole says …”


    54. Lewis: “From Germany onwards your results have picked up again but mine have dropped off, apart from Hungary and Italy, where I won”
      Jenson: “Ha, you think that’s bad? Try moving to my old team of seven years!”

    55. Jenson: “At least when I had the points advantage I didn’t throw my car into the gravel and get a gearbox full of neutrals”

    56. Niki Lauda says “get rid of de bling man, yo man not girl”

    57. LH: “Well the truth is JB, I couldn’t stand to do anymore Santander adverts. That PR work just took up too much of my time.”

    58. JB: … so, I hear Nicole’s gotta a McLaren F1 and you don’t get to drive that either

      LH: … seriously

      JB: …Just kidding

    59. Jenson: So after you told us you weren’t gonna renew your contract here I heard Luca dM and Martin Whitmarsh talking and Luca said: “So, we’re having doubts about Perez. We want to replace Massa, but we think Sergio might still be too young and inexperienced,” and then Martin says: “Yeah, you’re probably right. The guy’s shown some potential and all but to be honest I think he’s a flash in the pan and his career won’t be going anywhere in the long term. Personally, I wouldn’t sign him, if I were you.”

    60. LH: Why is everyone laughing at me, I know it was a mistake leaving you guys?

      JB: NO NO, the boys in the garrage are having a bet about what will happen if you post Mercedes’s telemetry in twitter next year

      LH… and

      JB: …. being chased by Norbert’s 3 Alsatian on the streets of Stuttgart is winning, ofcourse I put my money there

    61. Jenson’s reaction to the following question:

      “Hey Jenson, you’re gonna let me take the win at Suzuka if you’re first and I’m second, right?”

    62. Button: “So McLaren have nurtured you for 14 years and you do this? At least when they let me test their F1 car in 1998 I wasn’t thinking of the PR…”

    63. Lewis: “You know Jenson, its a really weird thinking I will be fighting this team for wins next year…”

    64. HAM: So, I think I want to get the seat you left in Mercedes….
      BUT: Hahahaha, nice one! so you can win races! hilarious!… wait…you’re kidding… right?

    65. Button: You moved to Mercedes to get a leg up on the ’14 turbo motors that will never make it to the grid? Hahahaha …

    66. Jenson : yes,yes.Lewis fall into my little trap
      Lewis : what?
      Jenson : Oh,nothing

    67. Lewis: Jenson, you are a bit two-faced, aren’t you.

    68. Just when he thought the news couldn’t get any better, Jenson found out the 2014 engine rule changes been scrapped…

    69. Martin just wished me all the best, Jens.

    70. Jenson: hahhaha Bernie said the 2014 engines to be scrapped, good luck at Mercedes
      Hamilton: Shut uppp

    71. Lewis : i’m moving to Mercedes
      Jenson : no your not
      Lewis : i am
      Jenson : thanks mate now I can be no.1 driver

    72. Lewis: Whats so funny??
      Jenson: Its called the “last laugh”. They warned me “Its Lewis’ Team” when I signed up for McLaren… hahaha!!!

    73. Jenson: “So then Ross says, ‘Hey Jenson, why not drive for Mercedes when your contract expires!’ Does he think I’m an idiot?”
      Lewis: “…”

    74. Lewis, I have to tell you something on behalf of the whole team. We’re all sorry to see Nicole go.

    75. Jenson: Try not to fall asleep while stopped in the pits!

    76. JB : But I swear you said in that interview “I just want to win…”
      LH : Yeah I do.
      JB : But you’ve signed with Mercedes-Benz!!!
      LH : …and???
      JB : HAHAHA, dont you get it?. 2 1/2 seasons, 52 races, 1 win…You think you can work magic then, or that you can do what a 7 times World Champion couldn’t…

    77. Jenson: And I had the last laugh!

    78. Button: “Guess who fitted your gearbox”

    79. Hey Lewis, That’s my car you’ll be driving next year!

    80. LH: Just you frickin’ watch Jenson, when I work with Ross, we’ll make 2008 happen all over again!
      JB: That’s all good mate, but 3 points for the season won’t win you a championship!

    81. A Stirling Moss SLR for my 1st, a Gullwing for my 2nd and when I win the 3rd Championship a 540K Special Roadster

    82. Lewis: It’s not that bad, from one Silver Arrow to another.
      Jenson: Yep, mine is red, yours will be cyan. If we’re next to each other, we will look totally 3D!

    83. JB: 2009 was just a coinsidence.

    84. You’ve what Lewis? You’ve actually put a bet on Perez to be World Champion next season!

    85. Lewis “Ross know how to make a good car, hu?”

    86. JB: Hey Lewis, wanna hear a joke?
      LH: Go on then
      JB: You at Mercedes!

    87. LH: Dude, i made Kimi laugh !
      JB: no way.

    88. “Jenson, mate…be honest. Do I make a good gangsta?”

    89. “Is Mercedes a good move? Course it is mate, best place for you!”

    90. “If you beat me in the Championship you can spend the night with Nicole”

    91. I had a dream last night that you’d died and gone to a very bad, dark place. But THIS….!?!

    92. Well Lewis…Iam very sad to see you go.

    93. JB: Lewis, if you beat me next year, how about I ‘introduce’ you to Florence after?
      LH: Isn’t that your ex man? And I’ve got Nicole…
      JB: I know… it’s just that you seem really keen to pickup my leftovers. :D

    94. Lewis – “Me and Nico are flipping a coin for who gets to race with a yellow helmet next year” JB – “haha oh yea I hadn’t thought about that”

    95. JB: Hey Lewis, can you ask Nico how many races his won in the last three years?

    96. “So, Jenson. What’s on your mind?”

      (coz I’ll be Head and Shoulders above you next season)

    97. really, Jense you need to leave too…
      button, why is that

      Lewis, McLaren is getting bought out by Honda

      Jense, yeah right m8

    98. Lewis: it really just comes down to me not getting to keep the trophies
      Jenson: Hahahaha you won’t be winning any

    99. Good one mate! you had us all going with that “Its not about the money ” thing!

    100. A little late I know but…

      Jens: even with this on my head you still look like more of a fool than me

    101. Lewis: Hey JB, have you seen my new car…
      Jenson: yeah! mwahahaha…

    102. Lewis: So Norbert insisted in the contract that the team get free concerts from Nicole. I agreed. Then Schumi said he’d rather drive on a track full of raw eggs and left. So they recalled Nico.

      Jenson (thinking): Yes, she’s going!

    103. jenson : lewis, you to mercedes?
      ipod stops working..
      jenson (lol) – you gonna **** up next year!!

    104. Lewis: “I’m going to Mercedes to win two other Championship titles and collect my McLaren F1!”
      Jenson: “I thought Ron said you needed to win three titles at McLAREN Mercedes to earn it, not Mercedes AMG?”
      Lewis: “Damn it! Can’t we switch seats?”

    105. You might be happy about me leaving but, I´m gonna be happier when Sergio mops the floor with you….

    106. Lewis: I already regretted, i think i took the wrong decision….. most likely i will fight in the midfield with merc next year…. :(
      Jenson: Look on the bright site ……. you will have more battles with Pastor :):)
      Lewis : Yeah !!! But this time i’ll have a more rugged car.

    107. Button: “See? Told you I could fit a condom over my head”

    108. Lewis – “Jenson… Don’t tell Martin, but I decided to switch over to Mercedes next year.”
      Jenson – “Hahaha…. you’re joking?”

    109. Jenson – “Lewis, why on Earth did you shave the right side of you face and leave the left side scrubbed?”
      Lewis – “I lost my bet against Sebastian that I’d beat him in Singapore.”
      Jenson – pause…”Bah, ha, ha, ha ha, ha, ha, ha, ha….”

    110. Hamilton – “So Jenson, happy not to have me outqualifying you every weekend?”

      Button – ” Myeah, a little bit”

    111. JB: And Martin said I can keep all my trophies and can have team leader on my motorhome door and if I win 3 races I get a Mclaren F1, what did they offer you?

    112. Lewis: Check this out, I have a strawberry growing out of my right ear!!!
      Jensen: Do you want some cream for that :)

    113. You got Punk’d!

    114. Button: Finally I will be winning races when that wus will be off my back.

    115. LEWIS: When I told Martin and Ron that Ross was going to pay me $100 million for three years they upped it to $160 million!
      JENSON: Now I know your taking the ****!
