Jenson Button’s Formula 1 career will continue into a 16th season following McLaren’s decision to retain him alongside new signing Fernando Alonso. McLaren finally announced their line-up on Thursday after taking weeks to decide whether to keep Button, 34, or 2014 team-mate Kevin Magnussen, 22.
“I am very pleased to have been invited to do my bit,” said Button. “In fact, I am absolutely raring to go.”
Dane Magnussen remains with McLaren as test and reserve driver.
“Fernando and Jenson have started a combined total of precisely 500 grands prix between them – a mighty aggregate – and have won 47 of them,” said McLaren chairman Ron Dennis. Via BBC Sport
