Button keeping his focus on the track

Jenson Button says his focus at present is not on a new contract, rather it's on getting McLaren back in form.

This season could prove to be the 2009 World Champion's last with the Woking team as his current deal expires at the end of the year.

However, rather than focus on contract talks, Button says his priority is McLaren's on-track results.

"No, no more progress but that's the way it is," he said during Thursday's press conference when asked for an update on his contract situation.

He added: "We're here, we've spent four good years together already, in our fifth year together. And we both want, I think, to work together in the future, but it's just not time yet, the right time.

"We've got a lot of other issues to solve first before we start thinking about the future too much."

The 34-year-old sees no reason why when it comes down to it he won't extend his stay with McLaren.

"We're in a good place, I think my experience does help me a lot. I still feel very young at heart, fitter than ever and I have all that experience.

"I'm in a great position, I feel that I've got a lot more to give in the future in Formula One.

"I definitely can't see an end to my career, this is my life, and where I want to be in the future."
