Jenson Button believes it would be the wrong decision for him to leave McLaren despite the team’s struggles this year.
McLaren are yet to score a podium finish this season as the MP4-28 has been well off the pace.
However Button, who joined the team in 2010, said: “I’m very happy to stay where I am.”
“It’s very easy when times are difficult to look elsewhere but when you’re in a team that’s like McLaren, has been fighting at the front for so many years, it’s definitely the wrong move to move elsewhere.”
Button admitted he hadn’t signed a contract for next year yet and wouldn’t be drawn on the details of his negotiations with McLaren during today’s press conference ahead of the Italian Grand Prix.
“I feel like I’ve got a good family around me in the team,” he added. ” At the end of last year we ad the quickest car on the grid. We don’t know but it could easily come our way again next season. I feel that we’re making good progress, this is the right place for me.”
