McLaren driver Jenson Button says he will retire from Formula 1 after Sunday's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The 36-year-old was set to have a sabbatical from the sport in 2017 with McLaren holding his place until 2018.

However, the 2009 world champion told the drivers' news conference: "I go into this weekend thinking it's going to be my last race. I think that's the best way.

"At this moment in time, I don't want to be racing in F1 beyond this year."
