Button: Team boss job not for me

Button: Team boss job not for me

You are unlikely to see Jenson Button on the pit wall once he retires as a driver as he believes the job of a team principal is too stressful.

Button has been on the Formula One circuit for more than a decade and he still has a few years left in him as McLaren are expected to hand him a new three-year contract in the coming weeks.

However, don't expect him to follow the lead of his childhood hero Alain Prost once he decides to call it a day and end his driving career.

"My hero, Alain Prost, started a team in the late nineties and it didn't work out for him," Button is quoted as saying by Press Association Sport.

"I remember speaking to him about what it was like and he said it was the most stressful time of his life - even more so than racing with Ayrton Senna.

"He said it was non-stop. He said he couldn't sleep. He didn't sleep through that period of time. He said it was very tough.

"It's a challenge, definitely, but it's not the challenge I'm looking for in life."
