Jenson Button has said that he will not be looking to follow Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel by signing a long-term F1 contract - even with McLaren.

You cant blame JB for keeping his options open, nobody in their right mind could put up with years of the circus that follows Lulu.
Jenson's in a great position though, hes proved just how good he is during his time at McLaren.
The best thing Whitmarsh could do is dump Lulu the drama queen and sign Di Resta to partner Button.

Jenson is smart. It doesn't make sense, from a future contract negotiation point of view, for any driver to say he will not entertain the possibility of ever going to another team (even if he has no intention of doing so).

McLaren would not sign Kubica anytime soon. He's just suffered a massive accident and has been recovering for quite a while. Make no mistake, Kubica has been doing a tremendous job, but he has yet to prove that he's still got it after that nasty accident. So until they see that Kubica still has what it take to be competitive, they would not think about giving him one of their cars. Hopefully he's still got it tho. He's one of the few great overtakers!

Button is a good driver...he has been superb in wet races....But in normal circumstances he cant match the pace of Big 3 -alonso,vettel nd lewis .....He can win races ,but with so much competition he cant win the championship.....the only guys who can match the Big 3 are Raikkonen or maybe Di Resta...Mclaren need to replace him after 2012
