Jenson Button to take a sabbatical in 2017

Lewis Hamilton just started his press conference by saying "Guys I have an announcement to make....I'm retiring."  Then burst out laughing "No chance." :roflmao:

A pretty shrewd move by Ron Dennis et al and no doubt very lucrative for Jenson. Some would say a win-win scenario:-)

I suspect he'd already made the decision but went for the 'sabbatical' option to give himself the maximum time to change his mind. 

One of F1's most underrated drivers. Wouldn't be surprised if he takes Mark Webber's vacated seat at Porsche.

Agree with that, in the right car he is a superb driver, the last time he was in a 1/2 decent car was 2011/2 & his drive in Canada 2011 still ranks as my best watched of all time.

Stone cold last on lap 37 well back from the pack & won the race!!!!

Nice bloke, I would have loved to see him present TG in a "stig plus" sort of role.

I'm sure he'll become part of the CH4 F1 team next year alongside Mark Webber.

I really liked the sculpture made up from bits off Jenson's old cars that CH4 (DC) presented him with to commemorate his retirement.

Amazing piece of art. Something that I'm sure he'll treasure.
