Jenson button has admitted that he does not exclude his return to Formula 1 season in 2018 as the primary pilot.
At the end of last year, button lost a place in the McLaren Stoffel Vandorn, but still signed a two-year contract with the team for the position of reserve rider, as well as Ambassador of the team.
After Fernando Alonso decided to skip the Monaco Grand Prix, to take part in the race, “Indy 500”, the button got the opportunity to get back behind the wheel of a F1 car.
“I think of Monaco as his only race this year – said button in an interview with the Daily Mail. – Of course, I agreed once again to act if they ask me, but I’m not going to continue with the planned road and beg again to let me go because we did not agree”.
Button did not rule out the possibility of returning in 2018 in McLaren to the position of the primary pilot, and also admitted that this year he was offered seats many teams in F1.
“I cannot exclude [return to F1 in 2018], because I have already agreed a contract with the team – continued button. – Surprisingly simple, but before this season I received many proposals to act as the main rider, the two teams were even begging me to chase them, but I’m not interested”.
