McLaren team Principal Martin Whitmarsh says that they are not hurry to finalise its 2014 driver line-up.

F1 paddock believes that Woking based squad will remain Jenson Button for next season, but the decision on Sergio Perez has yet to be taken up and that has led to rumours McLaren is trying to re-sign Fernando Alonso.

When the news source asked if he was any closer to choosing a second driver, Whitmarsh replied: “Yes, I’m closer. I’m one day closer than I was yesterday and guess what? I’m going to be one day closer tomorrow!

“There’s no hurry. I had said all along that let’s let a few races go by and then we’ll have a chat and I think that’s exactly what we’re going to do.

“There’s no tearing rush to do this at the moment. I know it’s an interesting story – and a whole load of spurious stories stem from it – but we are in no hurry.”

Other vital report McLaren confirming that they are signing of Peter Prodromou from Red Bull, and also Whitmarsh discharge any worries about his arrival despite Red Bull saying Prodromou is under deal until the end of 2014 F1 season.

“Firstly, he has a contract, he will be working for us in the future, but currently he is employed by Red Bull. We’ve got to respect that, and that’s why I don’t think we’re talking about timeframes or anything. The fact is he has a contract and he will come to McLaren.”
