Button optimistic on McLaren future, no fear of leaving

Future problems have solved and now Jenson Button is raring to get out on the track again for McLaren-Honda.

The Brit decorated an optimistic vision of McLaren-Honda future on Thursday and denied that a fear of leaving F1 had been behind his decision to stay for another season.

Last week McLaren confirms that Button would be staying on for another year as the Woking team attempt to give their desperate season a late upsurge.

“I had thoughts about what direction I would take if I wasn’t here next year, what I could possibly do, but it wasn’t in my mind for very long,” the Briton told reporters at the Russian Grand Prix.

“I had a really good week last week, very positive spending it with a lot of key individuals within the team, the heads of department that are really going to make a difference,” added Button.

“So I have real belief that it is going to be much better next year, both on the car and engine side, and that’s why I want to be racing here next year.”

“The only reason you want to keep racing is to have a chance of being competitive, and obviously we’re not there yet, but it will be the case in the future,” Button added.

“There are going to be lots of changes within the team, with the power unit. This is still a very young partnership and lots will change over the winter and we’ll be more competitive next year,”.
