Boullier expects Button to stay at McLaren
8 June 2014 – Eric Boullier says he expects Jenson Button to remain at McLaren for the 2015 Formula 1 season.
Button's contract expires at the end of the current campaign and he is yet to enter official talks over a fresh agreement, but Racing Director Boullier says he has seen enough to predict that he will remain onboard.
"Since I have joined McLaren I have found out what a great competitor he is and what a good asset he is for the team," Boullier, who joined the team from Lotus in January, explained to Sky Sports.
"I more and more appreciate what he can do. I'm very pleased and when the time comes to sit down then I would love to carry on with him. I expect him [to stay], but we haven't sat down properly yet."
Button, who claimed the world title in 2009, is contesting his fifth season for McLaren.
