Button could quit F1 over return of team orders
MONZA, Italy — Defending champion Jenson Button says the return of team orders could see him exit Formula One prematurely.
Button was quoted by British media at the Italian Grand Prix as saying he could quit the sport over a decision by the ruling International Automobile Federation to reinstate the banned regulation.
The British driver says: “I wouldn’t quit straight away but it would definitely shorten my career.”
Button trails McLaren teammate and overall F1 leader Lewis Hamilton by 35 points with six races left.
