His Formula 1 future may still be still up in the air, but Jenson Button is determined to “live in the moment” at the season finale in Abu Dhabi
With Fernando Alonso expected to return to McLaren next year, the Woking squad are yet to decide if they should retain Button or Kevin Magnussen.
The team have confirmed they won’t make an announcement on their 2015 driver line-up before December 1, meaning Button and Magnussen will head into the final race of 2014 unsure if they will return next year.
Button, though, is keeping his spirits up.
“Nothing has changed for me for the last two months,” he said. “I’ve got nothing else to add apart from I go into this weekend looking forward to it. I’ve learnt to live in the moment a lot more this year and that’s exactly what I’m going to do. I’ve got my family here so I’m looking forward to the weekend.
“It’s been an interesting few months. When you’re in Formula One for so many years, 15 years, you have blinkers on in terms of anything else apart from Formula One. This is the best sport in the world, this is your life, this is everything. But when you are put in an uncomfortable situation your eyes are opened to other possibilities. There are a lot of challenges out there, whether its in motorsport, other sports or something else altogether.”
