Button hints at Vandoorne F1 future



With a single comment, Jenson Button has fired speculation of a full-time return to F1, and cast doubt on the future of Stoffel Vandoorne.

The ‘retired’ 2009 world champion was back on the grid at Monaco last weekend, a substitute role for the Indy 500-racing Fernando Alonso.

Alonso’s contract runs out at the end of the year, but it was believed Belgian rookie Vandoorne had a long-term agreement with McLaren-Honda.

“I have a contract to drive in 2018,” Button, the reserve driver in 2017 and 2018, said at Monaco.

“I think I’m the only McLaren driver with a contract for the coming season,” he added.

Realising he may have misspoken, Button then said: “I don’t know, it’s just a feeling, not a fact. We’ll see.”
