Jenson Button is looking forward to the exciting challenge of racing for McLaren Honda and challenging for race wins and championships from next season.
The 2009 world champion was announced alongside Fernando Alonso as McLaren’s driver pairing for the 2015 Formula One season, when the team will embark on their ‘new era’ with Honda.
Button said that he spoke to his sister’s following the announcement and one of them told him that she had Goosebumps like when he joined the Williams team in the year 2000.
Button stated that it is difficult for the team to predict where they will be at the first race of the 2015 season, but they now have to put their heads down and to develop the car as quick as possible.
Button is sure that the team will be competitive next season, it is just a question of how competitive they will be.
It is not the first time that the pair will have worked together. In 2001, the pair were team mate’s at Benetton when Button was racing for the Enstone outfit alongside Giancarlo Fisichella.
