    Best news I've heard all week.

    If they work on their drivers, this might be pretty exciting stuff. I'm not sure if Jenson Button is staying though.

    Why wouldn't Button stay at McLaren?

    Because he wants to win, which isn't going well anymore and.. well, you saw what happened last time he was with Honda.

    Seriously though, I don't see him moving. They have the nouse and the resources to improve it again and next year is going to see a lot of clean slate stuff.. it'd be a lottery to go anywhere else.

    Not seriously anymore, see also this.

    He won with Honda and later won the World Championship with a rebadged Honda. This engine has already been under development since last year, so they are taking things very seriously. Hopefully McLaren will get their act back together in time though.

    I'm not aware of the politics behind the teams, so I didn't know if Button would stay or leave, whether contractually or personally.
