Button not thinking British GP to be last

Jenson Button insists he is not heading into the British grand prix thinking it could be his last home race.

But the F1 veteran, who is F1’s longest-serving active driver, admitted that it bothers him that Silverstone is one of the only tracks on the calendar on which he has never even scored a podium.

“I think it’s the only race with Sochi where I haven’t been on the podium,” he said in an interview with Brazil’s UOL. “It hurts a little.

“It’s the only thing about my career that’s disappointing,” said the 2009 world champion.

The 36-year-old McLaren-Honda driver is unlikely to put that statistic right this year, which will be his seventeenth consecutive British grand prix amid rumours he will be replaced by Stoffel Vandoorne for 2017.

“I don’t know if it will be my last year or if there is still a lot ahead of me so it makes no sense to think about it,” Button insisted.
