F1 >>> nEWs lEwIS, 'NANDO HIT THE SUppORT BUTTON Jenson Button’s future is still unclear but he has found support from t wo fellow World Champions. Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso have both thrown their support behind the english driver staying with McLaren in the future. Button’s future is unsure because the team has not determined whether it will keep him or Kevin Magnussen to partner, it is nearly certain, Alonso next season. “Jenson is better than most of the (current) drivers,” said Hamilton, who was Button’s teammate at McLaren between 2010 and 2012. ”He’s a great driver, still one of the strongest drivers here, and he’s had an amazing career. He’s also a decent guy, so it doesn’t correlate. “If I had a team, I would want him in it because he’s a great asset for any team, so I hope it’s not the case (he is leaving).” Hamilton believes McLaren’s judgement is clouded by the fact they have been winless for the past two years. “He still has plenty of time, given his ability as a driver, to keep racing and winning. He just needs to be given a better car. “It’s not the team need a better driver - there are not many out there. They just need a better car.” Alonso echoed those words. “He’s a very talented driver, we’ve seen that throughout his career, and also he’s a very nice person. “We need people like himinF1.Ihopehewillbe here next year.” 9 GPWEEK.com // 9 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS:
