McLaren Want Current Line-Up To Continue

McLaren team principal Martin Whitmarsh has announced that he would like the current pairing of Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button to continue "for many more years".

Button spent his first season at McLaren last season, after winning the World Championship with the Brawn GP team in 2009.
Hamilton has spent his entire Formula One career with the Woking-based team, since entering the sport in 2007.

Many critics suggested that Button would be shown up by the younger Hamilton if they both drove the same car, yet it was Button who set the pace for much of the earlier part of last season.
Whitmarsh, however, has suggested that the two drivers have a lot to learn from each other.

"We have two drivers that have a bond. They like working together and are both enjoying it."

"Jenson wants to beat Lewis and Lewis wants to beat him, but in the most productive manner."

So far this season, the McLaren drivers each have one podium finish to their name. To see our predictions for the coming Grand Prix, click here.
