Jenson Button wants to keep the number one on the front of his car for as long as possible after joining McLaren from Brawn GP.
The world champion has been revealed as a McLaren driver for the first time and will start testing for the team in February. The picture here was posted by the team on its Twitter feed over the weekend.
“Obviously, my aim is to keep the number one on my car for as long as possible," Button told McLaren’s official website.
"But, at the moment, it's a little bit too early to start talking about the world championship. The backbone of any title challenge is built on good preparation, hard word, focus and dedication.”
Button revealed he would be working with the engineers at the team’s Woking factory ahead of the first Valencia test.
“The next 10 weeks could well largely dictate the destiny of the 2010 world championship, so it's crucial that we start testing very strongly and that we never let up,” he said.
"I'm more motivated than ever to work with the team and my engineers, and I'm extremely positive for the year ahead. Obviously, it's fantastic to be part of one of the most famous names in Formula 1.
