Jenson Button not decided on McLaren for 2016 F1

Once again, Jenson Button made an expected performance with poor McLaren-Honda machine in Monza for Italian Grand Prix.

Last week, McLaren hints that their aim to keep the 2009 world champion alongside Fernando Alonso for 2016 F1.

The Brit had to kill time until December of last year before being retained for this season and is in no mood for a do again in 2016 F1.

“I think that’s something we need to discuss away from the circuit, I think over the next few weeks,” the Brit said.

“I think it’s always in your hands…so hopefully over the next few weeks we can decide either way.”

Asked if the team’s current lack of performance will impact his own decision, he said: “I think I’ve said too much already.”

Opening stint of the race, Button made up places in the field and by lap two was up to 10th place and finally managed 14th place. “I had a good start, and took some cars into Turn One,” he said

“Then it was basically just waiting for people to come by.The problem is it’s quite difficult because they are passing you in places you didn’t think possible.

“The whole time you’re looking in your mirrors on the entry to a corner, which is unusual. It makes it very difficult in the race when you have low [ERS] deployment.”
