Jenson Button will not be a full-time Formula 1 driver in 2017. That much is clear, though he will remain on the McLaren books as a reserve driver and will take on more ambassadorial duties for the team and its engine supplier Honda.
Could he do more, though? Or should he do less?
At 36, with a world title and 15 grand prix victories on his CV, Button has nothing left to prove in F1.
