Contract in hand, there is the option of returning in 2018, but it may possibly Jenson Button has lived his last race in Formula 1. The british pilot has been dismissed from the premier category with a bittersweet taste after having to leave in the GP of Abu Dhabi a problem in the front suspension right of his McLaren MP4-31 the result of the attack on a piano with too much aggressiveness. All in all, Button has been fired between the samples of affection of his team, his teammate Fernando Alonso and his entire family, who have accompanied him throughout the weekend in Yas Marina.

After the race, Jenson Button explained the causes that have led to its abandonment: A suspension component failed on the car, things that very rarely happens. The failure was in the front suspension right, and the truth that I am glad to have been able to realize before stepping on the brake in the curve 11. It has always been a feature of our equipment that components rarely fail, but today something went wrong. I Think that it has only been bad luck“.

despite finishing the race ahead of time, Jenson Button opted to say goodbye with a smile and looking the positive side: “I very much Enjoyed. My run today was short, but I loved everything else. I was very excited before getting into the car, because I lived a very special atmosphere thanks to all the team, my friends and my family. All encouraged me on the way to the box. I’m glad I brought my sunglasses at that time. Of truth, I am very happy with everything I have achieved in my career. Now, it is fact. Live the moment, but this night is going to be a lot of fun”.
