F1 » Button: ‘I’m not done yet!’


I don't believe Button has much choice, Ron Dennis has made it pretty clear over the past few days that they don't want Button anymore, In fact their driver lineup might well turn out to be Alonso/Vandoorne rather than Magnussen. Since Button wants to continue in F1 and wants to win again his only realistic hope is that somebody in a top team get's injured and he gets called up as a replacement, other than that perhaps taking a year out to see if anything turns up however unlikely that is. Now that Tom Kristensen is retiring there would be a seat at Audi but i don't believe Audi would be interested in Button especially as there is talk of them pulling out. Another possibility is three car teams but would Button want to drive say a third Ferrari, I doubt that very much. He has been treated apallingly by Mclaren but Ron Dennis has never been a fan and is just exercising his prejudices. I just hope Button is sitting around at the end of next season thinking I'm glad I did'nt have that dr

Sportscars » WEC: Audi: A race can’t be won like this


They tend to change the rules when one team has a huge advantage as Audi have had for about 14 years, It's up to Audi to adapt rather than threatening to pull out. The championship needs more competitive cars especially in LMP1 if it is to gain credence as a proper World championship. The problem in the past has been that teams come in, win and then withdraw to bath in the glare of publicity, what we need is for Ferrari/Nissan/Jaguar etc to come in and then you would have 5 or 6 top LMP1 teams competing for the wins.

F1 » F1: McLaren delays driver decision


Their can only be one real reason for this further delay and that is that Alonso has still not signed on the dotted line. Whatever game Alonso is playing could lead to Button leaving F1 and or Mclaren ending up with egg all over their face. Button has stated that he might not sign a new deal even if it were offered, presumably he has other options but they must be outside of F1, however Porsche have denied talking to him and have in any case a full team of drivers as do Toyota and Audi. I can't see Button going to the graveyard of the DTM or Indy cars so his career might well be over. If he stays with or without Alonso just what sort of deal would RD offer him given that he clearly doesn't think much of Button who he once described as a "Playboy" Not a happy situation and one that has been handled appallingly by all management at Mclaren.

F1 » Button calls on McLaren to ‘fight hard’


The person who needs to fight hard is Button, if this is to be his last drive for Mclaren he needs to prove his worth to another team wherever that is. Hopefully it won't come to that although I rather believe the dye is cast. Mclaren are supposed to be bringing a large update as part of a package by their new designer, seems a bit pointless just for one race especially as most of their updates during the past two seasons have proved not to be updates at all.
