Button Remains Quiet on Future Plans

McLaren driver Jenson Button remained  tight lipped about his future in F1.

When asked by journalists on Thursday’s press conference all Button could say was that he is in “good talks” with the team.

“I can’t give you anything else,” said Button when asked about his future plans.

“Since the last race there’s no more information to give you,” he added.

“You’re going to have to wait for a little while I’m sorry to say but we’re in good talks, the team and myself so, that’s it.

McLaren hold the key to Button’s future in F1 if they decide to exercise their option extend his contract for 2016. Both parties are playing their cards close and are not giving anything. In Singapore Button said that he already had made up his mind about his future and has lost all joy in the sport. On Thursday ahead of the Japanese Grand Prix, Button cleared things up and said that what he said may have been misquoted and clarified things up a bit.

“I think it was worded slightly differently than that – but I don’t think any driver has joy when they’re not fighting for victories,” he said.

It has not been the easiest of seasons for the 35-year old Briton with the McLaren Honda not performing as expected and their pace which sees them fighting at the back of the field. It has been a constant source of frustration for Button and at some point your patience has to get a little thin.
