I think McLaren will continue with the Merc engine deal till 2015, because having the class of the paddock for free, in the back of your car, especially considering that Merc still considers Macca a partner is a fantastic advantage for a newley independent team.
No kimi won’t driver for McLaren, that boat was burnt when he wouldn’t sign last time.
By all acounts Button has been the perfect second man, getting the points an the vicotries when Hamiltons not quite there. Taking points of his rivals at almost every race. Nice enough to understand that Hamilton is not infact being favoured, really it’s not only Button whose been fully justified in sigining for McLaren.
