Some thought that moving to McLaren alongside Lewis would expose his flaws and possibly even be the beginning of the end of his driving career.

I think it's done the opposite and he's shown himself to be a very good asset to any team both on and off track, which (like it or not) is now a bigger than ever part of the story.

A move to Ferrari couldn't be ruled out, I think he'd fit in well.

I very much enjoyed his post race interview which clearly displayed that he is a true gentleman sportsman much in the mould of Damon Hill. He had a huge helping of misfortune at Monaco but he didn't moan about it. One or two other drivers would do well to take note. He would fit in well wherever he chooses to go and Ferrari would benefit. Good luck in the future Jensen, you truly deserve it.

Ferrari would be better off with a younger & more agressive driver i.e,de rista or sutil. Ferrari need a driver to challange Alonzo, Massa is not doing it. Button drives like my grandfather on a sunday scenic drive,no agression. He is looking good at Mclaren because of Hamiltons reckless driving style especially under pressure.Hamilton should go to redbull & partner with Vetel. Jenson stay at Mclaren as No. 1 driver with maybe de rista or sutil as No. 2driver.. Sadly if i look at the current driver lineup i dont see anyone with the Potential to become a great F1 driver other than the Vettel, Alonzo, Hamilton.

I can only think of Nigel Mansell who has driven for all 3, Williams, Ferrari and briefly McLaren. Is there anyone else?

Edited to add, Alain Prost.

Any others?

As a Button's fan, i wouldn't mind to see hime in red, but i dont think he would be happy there, even Prost who actually been in all best teams at their peak, had to go. Anyway as a trouble free driver like barrichello can a good team player. Im happy to see him driving hard on last two races, he just needs more luck to win one. But i think that Mc is the best on developing competitive cars so better to stay here. I always wonder if his style would suit Indy with tyre management and smooth driving what about Penske team and swithc with Will Power:-)

Well i guess Ferrari will be looking for another number two driver to replace Massa at some point, so, no reason at all to think that Button can't drive for them in the future.

The problem for Button if their is any is that he is nearing the end of his career, I believe he has said that he expect's NO1 status or equal NO1 which is fair enough given that he was 2009 World Champion. I believe he has been given equal equipment and testing at McClaren but probably not the phycological backing because Hamilton is their baby (literally) and he has to live with that. Ron Dennis was never a fan of Button and he has kept notably quite on the subject. Button would never go to Ferrari because he would have to accept the NO2 slot and no one else could afford him and why would he go to any lesser team, none of them are going anywhere soon so Button should stay at McClaren until he retires, I guess at the end of 2012 unless Hamilton jumps ship which is more likely as he wants to win and more teams would want him. If that happened I could see Button as NO1 for a couple more years with a younger hotshoe as teamate.
