Red Bull, Mercedes and Ferrari are 3/4 of the Big 4 and they have their drivers for 2015 sorted. The only real option is an unlikely McLaren drive or if Williams drop Massa, which I doubt will happen.

Mclaren haven't resigned Button yet.. We know Boullier has a soft spot for Grosjean, and he did show last year he is quick. Remember the later stages of last season? He was basically the only guy taking the fight to Redbull. You never know, stranger things have happened in F1.

It is obvious to most that Mclaren are undecided about their future drivers, if they can't land Alonso/Hamilton/Vettel then they will have to take somebody else if they decide that there is no point in keeping Button. Boullier is Grosjean's manager so there is a strong link. I doubt that Mclaren will land any of the above three because they are well aware that Mclaren has'nt produced a good car for several years so they will have to take a second stringer with potential or keep Button. I thought Alonso would possibly go back to Mclaren but it looks as if he's at Ferrari to the end of his career. Grosjean is fast enough to give Button plenty of trouble if he stays as he's not exactly thrashing Magnussen.

Yeah... bit of a head scratcher. feel sorry for his present predicament as he had been fast last year... McLaren is his best bet, although , as has been said, they may not be a "top 4 " team next year. Options do look bleak!
