Storm in a teacup blows over

Jenson Button will be allowed to test for BAR for two days in December. The "drama" over permission for Button to test came to a close when Button's management team issued a smarmy press release praising Renault Boss Flavio Briatore and saying that there had never been a problem between the team and their client.

This was not a very intelligent response given that yesterday Briatore issued a press statement saying that there was a problem because no-one had asked him to let Button test. Button's management's decision to blame the press will do nothing to convince the media to help them promote their client.
