Button: Retirement not on the cards

Button: Retirement not on the cards

Jenson Button says he won't be retiring from F1 any time soon with his focus remaining on what he needs to do to be quickest.

Next year Button will be the second oldest driver on the grid, just months behind Kimi Raikkonen, but like the Finn has no plans to retire.

Having stated in the past that he wants to remain at McLaren into the new Honda era in 2015, Button has given little thought to what he will do when the day comes.

However, should he take a guess at what the future holds, the 33-year-old would like to guide the next generation of racers.

"Richard, my manger, thinks about what I should do but I don't," he told TotalRace.

"I have so many years ahead and it is more important to think about that right now, what I need to do in the car to be sure that I will be fastest.

"This is my thinking right now.

"But there are some things that could happen parallel to my car.

"I think I have something to give the youth and that they will listen to me.

"I think if a businessman said to a kid he has to act in a certain way, he will not listen. But if a F1 World Champion said it that would be different."
