I appreciate that Hamilton's driving style is harder on his tires, but I do believe that to be overblown somewhat by the media. On Sunday, Lewis was hardly punishing his tires through the last half of the race. Meanwhile, Button admitted that his half-hearted attempts to pass Schumacher had caused tire degradation, which caused him to nurse his tires to the end of the race. So, in Spain at least, Hamilton was more the victim of bad luck than rough driving on his tires.

I appreciate Button's driving style, which at times seems smooth and clinical. I also appreciate Hamilton's style, which is more agressive and "slashing". Reminds me of the old Senna-Prost comparison at McLaren. It may also have something to do with the age and experience gap between Hamilton and Button.
