the two races he did not finish - Spa 10 - crashed out in the wet Can 11 - taking out by Button
5 out of 9 for Button !
the other four races he did not score 1) Spa 10 - taken out by Vettel 2) Korea 10 - finished but no points - poor pace/ strategy 3) Silverstone 11 - bungled pit stop -retired 4) Malaysia 11 - finished but no points cos he crashed into a HRT
Il_leone, I noticed that Button had more wins than Alonso. I wasn't saying he was better than Button (and now I'm not saying he's worse than Button, I'm not commenting at all on their relative performance)
Winning three out of 9 races is not "having more succes by finishing", it's good. And apart from that he scored 2 more podiums and two 4th places. There's only one driver who won more wet races in those three years. There's no driver who got more podiums than he did. He scored more points than any other driver in the wet.
How can you say that's anything other than good? If that's not good, all the others except Button must be total rubbish, because they all did worse than Alonso (less wins, less podiums, less points, although Webber and Massa had more finishes, bu8t seeing where they finished you can hardly call them better).
