Button bored by speculation

Button bored by speculation

Jenson Button has vowed to "do the best for himself, the team and the fans" despite the ongoing speculation over his future.

The 2009 World Champion's future on the grid remains uncertain with McLaren making no secret of the fact that they are chasing a top driver like Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel for the 2015 season.

"I've been racing in F1 for 15 years. You go through a lot in your career, you hear a lot of b*******," Button is quoted as saying by Press Association Sport.

"Initially it's annoying, but then you're like 'you know what, I've been here before, been in this situation before, heard it before'.

"So you just get on with your job, and I love racing in Formula One.

"Every time I jump in a car I do the best job I can - and it doesn't matter who it's for or where it is - I do the best for myself, the team and the fans.

"That's not going to change because you never do a half-hearted job, you always do the best you can, you want to beat your team-mate and you want to beat every single guy out there.

"Nothing changes, just the length of time you have available to fulfil your dreams.

"So I'm massively relaxed. I'm always relaxed."

The veteran F1 driver recently admitted that he could be forced to retire if he doesn't retain his seat, but he admits he's not quite sure what will happen.

"When you're asked the question (about his future) so many times you've got to say something different else it gets boring," he said.

"Not for you guys, but for me it gets boring. I'm so bored of answering the same questions.

"I said if I wasn't racing at the end of the season, so be it. That's what I said.

"If I'm not racing, so be it. I can't do much about that, but it's not that I'm getting ready because I definitely don't want to retire for many years."
