Williams announced the signing of Jenson Button on a two-year deal for the 2005 and 2006 seasons. His then current team BAR-Honda, however, claimed he was in breach of his contract. The case went before the Formula One Contract Recognition Board and the decision fell in BAR's favour and Jenson remained with the team. Strangely, a year later, Williams claimed Jenson was contracted to them for the 2006 season but Button now wanted to remain at BAR. A reported £20 million was paid by Button to Williams to release him from the contract.
2007Lewis Hamilton took his third win and 10th podium finish of his debut season at the Hungarian Grand Prix. McLaren team-mate Fernando Alonso finished second and the Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen completed the top three. Saturday's qualifying session saw a controversial incident when Alonso deliberately waited in the pit box to prevent Hamilton from changing his tyres and completing his final flying lap in Q3, denying him the chance to take pole position. But Hamilton had the last laugh as Alonso was given a five-place grid penalty, handing pole to the Englishman.
