With two races to go in the 2011 F1 season and Jenson Button ahead of Lewis Hamilton by 38 points, we’re running a competition to predict what the final points position will be between the two McLaren team mates after the final race in Brazil.

Hamilton had the edge during the first two thirds of the season then Button got in front at the Belgian Grand Prix and since then his run of podiums and a win in Japan have eased him clear, while Hamilton has been involved in collisions and hasn’t hauled in the points.

Hamilton, who has never been beaten by a team mate in a championship before, this weekend dismissed team boss Martin Whitmarsh’s suggestion that Button’s form was unsettling him as “rubbish”. (see separate story below)

So can he claw back the gap? Or will Button extend it? There are a maximum 50 points on the table for the final two races. You get 18pts for second place in a Grand Prix and 15pts for third place.

Put your predictions in the comments section below:
1. The order they will finish in
2. The points gap between them


The competition closes at midnight UK time on 26th November. The first registered correct answer will win a full size official cinema poster of the Senna movie – not easy to come by. The movie is now out on DVD and Blu ray.

56

Extreme! 2 wins for Lewis and 2 DNFs for Jenson? There's wishful thinking and then there's you, I guess! 🙂

57

Button by 33 points!

Finally saw Senna a month ago here in Canada. It took a long time to come here, and I had to travel quite a ways to see it, but it was marvelous. My friends and I all shed some tears, even though several of them knew nothing at all about F1.

58

Okay my prediction between these two gladiators is there will be a 5 point difference between them in favour of Hammy.

[mod]

70

Only 2 ways this can occur:

1) LH a 1st and a 2nd; JB 2 DNF's

2) LH with two 1st's; JB with a 7th & a 10th

71

Lewis claim 2nd place in Abu Dhabi with Jenson 3rd. Then Jenson 2nd in Brazil and Lewis 3rd. So 38 points difference in favor of Jenson.

72

1. Hamilton ahead of Button

2. By 1 point!!!!

73

Hehe! I've got them equal at 252 points. Couldn't get myself quite to where you're at! 🙂

Good competition

Shame too much of this is being made though.

Great for Jenson to be doing so well in a team that all thought he would fail in.

Lewis is just as Mark Webber is doing, struggling with the car. I'm sure they are both smart enough not to be worried about 2nd, 3rd, or 4th it's all about 1st.

And well deserved by Button-just has to get his qualifying improved and next year could be champion again.

105

Button ahead of Hamilton by 21 points

The extreme bet is for Hami to win both races

106

Jenson ahead of Lewis, by 45 points.

107

JB ahead of LH BY 26 points

108

1. JB will ahead of Halmilton

2. Gap: 27 points

109

Button by 3 points

110

1. Jenson Ahead of Lewis.

2. Ahead by 20 points.

111

I'm really sticking my neck on the block here so I'm predicting a McLaren 1-2 at the final two races with a win for Lewis in both cases, which will leave Jenson still ahead by 24 points. - There are now not enough racers for Lewis to reel Jenson in unless he has another DNF or very low points score.

So Jenson leading Lewis by 24 points.

112

JB by 68 points.

113

Button, Hamilton

Difference of 28 points

114

Jenson will be ahead by 36 points

130

JB and LH equal at 252.

Don't need the poster though. I already got a few (both sizes too).

132

Well, as it hasn't (visibly) been guessed already...

Button ahead of Hamilton by 15 pts.

133

Button by 22 points 😉

134

Button ahead of Hamilton by 31 points

135

Lewis wins the last 2 races, Button has a DNF and 4th place to his name - they tie on points and Lewis finishes above Button in the standings by virtue of 4 race victories to 3 victories!

....Lewis then returns next year, fully focused and with his mojo rediscovered, batters Button in the standings, wins the World championship and tells Whitmarsh to stick it where the sun don't shine and take the number 1 to either Ferrari or Red Bull!

136

Good story, mate

137

1. Hamilton ahead of Button

2. 0 points, Hamilton on wins by 4 wins to 3 wins.

138

Button ahead by 14 Points

139

JB by 27.

It's probably been taken above, most combo's have been taken ... first I was thinking JB by 24, then JB by 21 ... both taken.

140

JB ahead of Lewis by 10 points.

PK.

141

1) Button ahead of Hamilton

2) Button ahead by 24 Points

142

Anything can happen in F1 and I don't think anyone else put it, so:

Jenson by 47 pts.

143

1. Lewis ahead of Button

2. 6 points

144

Button ahead of Hamilton by 60 points.

I don't actually think this will happen, but i was late to this party and there aren't many other options available!!
