New existing Formula 1 season beginning, McLaren leads on constructors standing, the British speedy Jenson Button said he had been approached by Ferrari to leave McLaren last year. Jenson Button replaces Felipe Massa at the Italian stable.
“I was happy to see that my work is appreciated. I heard that some teams had to offer me,” Button told The Associated Press. Button would have received a proposal from Ferrari before hitting its renewal with McLaren.
Button had recently stated that I would be team-mate Fernando Alonso. “He’s extremely talented, champion, fast,” defined the British pilot, speaking Spanish. “He is the fastest in our sport? Probably not and this should also be your answer, but is very intelligent.”
2009 world champion surprise about the interest of Ferrari confirms the disappointment of the Italian team with Massa. Following a poor season in 2011, Massa had terrible performance in the first two races this season.
