Button admits retirement is possible
28 August 2014 – Jenson Button has admitted that he could be forced into retirement at the end of the 2014 season.
McLaren is taking time over its future line-up ahead of Honda's return as its engine partner, with Racing Director Eric Boullier conceding that the situation is "uncomfortable" for Button and rookie team-mate Kevin Magnussen.
Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso are reportedly being chased by the outfit and, with Magnussen an in-house product, former World Champion Button is seen as the man most likely to fall should a change occur.
"We haven't sat down and talked about it," he told BBC Sport. "If I have to retire at the end of the season then so be it, but I feel I have so much more to give and I can't imagine life without motorsport and especially Formula 1."
Button has raced for McLaren since 2010, switching from Brawn GP after claiming his sole title to date.
