Button not interested in running own Formula One team

London: Formula One star Jenson Button has said that he never would like to become a team principal because of the stress that comes with the job, adding that he does not see himself being a team leader in the future.

According to metro.co.uk, Button expressed that his hero Alain Prost started a team in the late nineties and it did not work out for him.

It is anticipated Button will soon put pen to paper on a new contract with McLaren, a team he joined in 2010 after winning the world title with Brawn GP the year before, the report said.

McLaren have an option on Button`s deal for next season, and although it has yet to be signed off by team principal Martin Whitmarsh, it is understood it will be a formality, the report added.

Button, however, is hoping for a contract that will take him beyond next year and into a new era with the Woking-based marque when Honda will again power them from 2015, the report further said.
