That is such BS... I hate statements like that, because we all know he would be hailed as one of the greatest drivers ever if the season's results were reversed and he made a big comeback after a bad start...
He deserves the title either way for the total of his performances this year.

Well done Jensen

I think that most people in the sport realise that he is a long way from being the best driver in the championship, I can think of at least five of his rivals who are better drivers. He has won the championship because the Brawn cars were so far superior at the beginning of the season, when Brawn had their clear advantage he won 6 of the first 7 races, when some of the other teams caught up with Brawn he had just 1 podium finish in the following 9 races.
Lets think about that, he is driving one of the best cars around yet in the last nine races he has had just one podium finish, second place in Italy.
He has been in F1 for 10 years and before he got in a car which was clearly superior to every other car around he has never looked liked being a consistent winner let alone world champion. Up until the end of the 2008 season he had 148 starts with 1 victory then he got into the Brawn car and won 6 of the next 7, that seems to suggest that his victories are down to his car. 10 years in F1 with 148 starts and just 1 solitary victory but now he is the world champion??
I don't have anything against him, good luck and congratulations to him but to me he is just a reasonably good driver and that's all.
