Jenson Button believes McLaren Honda will come good

Former Formula One Drivers’ World Championship holder Jenson Button has insisted that he made no mistake in re-signing with McLaren Honda for the 2015 season despite the team going through such a crisis.

Button finished at last position, two laps down at the season opening Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne’s Albert Park last weekend, while rookie driver Kevin Magnussen, standing in for the injured Fernando Alonso failed to finish the race.
