London Lite Thursday, 10 September 2009 35 Mansell tells fading Button: Shake yourself up a bit FORMER world champion Nigel Mansell has warned championship leader Jenson Button (left) that he must shake himself up a bit as he prepares for Sundays Italian Grand Prix at Monza. Button is currently 16 points clear with just five races remaining but the 29-year-old has endured a poor run of results since winning in Turkey in June, with a fifth-placed finish his best effort in the last five races. Mansell, 56, who dominated from the front to win the 1992 crown for Williams, said: Jenson should really sew up the championship from that position. He can still afford to let people finish in front of him and win the title but he needs to be careful. I think he needs to shake himself up a bit. People react to pressure in different ways and we are seeing Jenson under real pressure for the first time now.

The feel-good factor that accompaniedtheAshesvictory has now been officially snuffed out following last nights six wicket drubbing at the Rose Bowl -- and there could be worse to come. Australia now lead the series 3-0 -- with captain and stellar batsman Ricky Ponting flying back for the remaining games -- and last nights centurion Cameron White is targeting a clean sweep. If we keep playing good, consistent cricket, there is no reason we cant win the series 7-0, he said after cracking 105 from 124 balls as his side coasted past a modest victory target of 229 with more than an over to spare. Seven one-day wins against a really good side would be a prettystrangethingtohappen, but Im not saying it cant. Andtherawstatisticssuggest there is little England can do to stem, let alone turn, the tide. No single England partner- ship was worth more than 41, and even that was more than 100 runs fewer than Cameron WhiteandMichaelClarkeman- aged in their game-breaking stand. True, this is an England side without Kevin Pietersen and Andrew Flintoff, while bright young thing Adil Rashid was puzzlingly left out again. WiththeWorldCup twoyears away shouldnt England be building a side around their talented youngsters, rather than those who have tried and failed over a decent chunk of time? No,accordingtoStrauss,who said: You do not look that far intothedistance.Youmayhave some long-term goals, but you need to address things on a short-term basis.
