According to British publication Autosport, Jenson Button is now attempting to get out of a deal with Williams agreed last year that enables the Grove-based squad to take up an option on his services for next year. The much publicized option that Williams holds indicates that they can call on Button’s services if he and BAR fail to achieve 75 percent of the points total of the championship leader by the Turkish Grand Prix next month.
"Our contract (with Button) is not watertight but we're relying on the fact Jenson will see there is a good future with Honda," BAR Honda CEO Nick Fry told BBC Radio Five Live. "Honda have a huge heritage in F1, we've won in the past and we will in the future. We're a good place to be and Jenson's got to make up his mind."
