McLaren yet to re-sign Button

McLaren yet to re-sign Button

Jenson Button insists McLaren is the "right" team for him even though they have yet to exercise their option on the Brit.

Button joined McLaren in 2010 on the back of his Championship-winning season with Brawn GP but has failed to achieve a World title with the Woking-based outfit.

Out of the fight again this season, Button was asked at Spa whether a move to Red Bull or Ferrari could be on the horizon.

The 33-year-old, though, says he wants to remain with McLaren even though they have yet to use their option on him for 2014.

"I need to be asked first," he told The Guardian when asked if he'll pledge his future to McLaren. "Where is Martin? He still hasn't asked me.

"I think Red Bull is done anyway. But I think Ferrari is a massive opportunity for a driver. It's a team that has a lot of history. I think they will be fighting for Championships in the future. I hope that someone who deserves that drive gets it.

"I want to win the World Championship again. If I thought it was the right option and I had the opportunity there that would be great for me. But is it the right option? I think here is my right option."
