Jenson Button’s Future in F1 Still Unclear
By: S. Harding, Xiro Xone News September 24, 2015
Mclaren Honda driver Jenson Button had no update on rather or not he will he will retire at the end of the season, but has said that talks with McLaren for 2016 are ongoing.
At Thursday’s FIA press conference the 2009 world champion was asked to clarify his plans for the future he replied: "I can't give you anything else, really. Since the last race there's no more information to give you. You're going to have to wait a little while more but we're in good talks, the team and myself - that's it."
"There's so many possibilities as to what could happen next year, so many possibilities. But I haven't got anything else for you, I'm sorry."
Button went on to say: "I can't go any further with my comments. I'll be happy next year, that's the important thing."
When Button was asked about a possible World Endurance Championship drive, he had this to say: "I've never thought about doing both. With a 22-race F1 calendar you're going to be very limited on weekends and sometimes it's nice to have a weekend off from motor racing, so I can't see that happening. Maybe Nico's going to be doing the same again next year but for every other driver it's going to be a super-busy calendar. It wouldn't work for me, anyway."
Button finished things off by clearing the air about comments he made after last weeks the Singapore Grand Prix.
"I think it was worded slightly differently than that, but I don't think any driver has joy when they're not fighting for victories. I don't like finishing 14th, I don't like finishing tenth, that's not what gives me joy, that's not what excites me, but there are so many things that if they work in your favor or you see a future, there's the possibility of joy coming back and that's exciting, that's a challenge. But no, after the Singapore Grand Prix I wasn't joyful, no."
