Perhaps Jenson Button has other possible offers for 2014

May 22 (GMM) Jenson Button on Wednesday refused to commit to McLaren for the beginning of the Honda era in 2015.

Team boss Martin Whitmarsh this week said he is happy with McLaren's current driver lineup, but managing director Jonathan Neale acknowledged that the Woking based team is merely "hoping" Button will still be at the wheel in two years.

When asked about 2015, when former works Honda driver Button will potentially be reunited with Japanese power at McLaren, the 33-year-old said in Monaco: "I don't want to think about the future too much at the moment.

"You've got to live in the moment and I don't think trying to agree a lengthy deal for the future is something that is interesting at the moment for me."

Button did, however, sound excited about the Honda deal -- not just for McLaren's sake, but also for F1 more generally.

"For us as a team, I think it's good news for the future. But I also think for the sport as a whole, it's fantastic news," said the Briton.
