McLaren yesterday dropped some of the hottest news in F1 grand prix racing to date when they announced that Jenson Button will partner Lewis Hamilton at the F1 team next season in an all-British lineup of world champions.

This ultra lucrative multi-year deal (in the region of 6 million pounds a year besides race bonuses, hot women and sponsorship deals) sees the newly-crowned title holder come from not having a team to race for when Honda withdrew itself from F1 because of financial costs involved to being roped into what could possibly be one of THE BEST F1 teams in history. Button had this to say about his move to McLaren-

“You can’t help but be affected by this team’s phenomenal history. McLaren is one of the greats of world sport, and its achievements and list of past champions read like a Who’s Who of Formula One,”

“I’ve followed the McLaren team ever since I was a small boy, and it feels unbelievable finally to be a part of it.”

Now its just a matter of waiting to see if the ego’s of Lewis Hamilton and Jensen Button are going to get in the way of each other or whether they’ll act like civilised Britains and not innits and tear apart every single other team and lap record out there.

Thanks to wheels24 for the pics and most up to date team details. Still alot of teams needing to sort out a pair of drivers that is going to give McLaren any sorts of hassles but nonetheless an exciting season ahead indeed!

Im a guy with a very particular view of life... im not quite sure what that view is just yet, but when I find out I'll be sure to let you know...
