I think Button stayed with honda a bit to long and now he might find that his f1 career is over.

Facts we know. All rides except STR and Honda (if they find a buyer) are taken. Not going to happen anytime soon.

teammoda has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
The quicker we see the back of Jenson Button the better,Time after time I was fed with he's non commitment during he's time with Honda,how many crashes did we see, how many excuses did we hear it all got so tedious.Whoever takes over Honda would be a mug to employ Button with all the hungry talent out there.As for Bernie He's comments in recent years must be questioned,what he says simply doesent make sense.

He's outpaced all of his team mates,which hardly explains "non commitment".Even this season his race pace was better than Ruben's.

Button is quite famous for 'not crashing' and all the excuses about the car not performing were actually backed up by the car not performing.This seasons performance was hampered by lack of development at a very early stage (about January) and focusing on Ruben's 'brake problem' and the 2009 car.Lack of commitment can be explained by a lack of commitment.

I wouldn't put Jenson in the Top 5, but he's up there with the best of the rest and is more than worth his place in F1.

I'm also not so sure that "all the hungry talent out there" is actually any good.

The best young drivers out there are already in F1. I'm talking about Rosberg, Kubica, Vettel, Hamilton...etc

He's not 'spectacular' and so doesn't give that impression of being a top driver.More of a 'Prost' than Hamilton/Alonso 'Senna-esque'.He's saying that the change to slicks is the best thing yet with regards to his driving style,but I guess that others will say that too.

FWIW I hope that his team mate is Barrichello,who I believe is just as worthy of his place in F1.But his age does him no favours.

People seem to miss that this is a business like any other and there are people capable to evaluate and weight the value of each professional that is working there. The "deserve" bit and the "should or should not" bits are just for who's outside watching things going on. If Button - like any other driver in the grid - is there and he's wanted by teams, that's because the guy is good enough to be there.
