Button – I did think about Rio Olympic and then decided ‘no’

Jenson Button has hit back at reports he contemplated quitting F1 for the Olympics.

The Mirror newspaper had quoted the McLaren driver as saying amid McLaren’s dithering last year, the 35-year-old thought instead about launching a bid to contest the 2016 Olympic triathlon in Brazil.

“I did think about Rio and then decided ‘no’,” Button was quoted as saying.

But, including a link to the Mirror article, Button told his more than 2 million Twitter followers: “Just so you know, not even the tiniest bit of truth in this headline!” (GMM)
