Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone believes it is a shame Jenson Button has signed a three-year deal with Honda now the team has pulled the plug from Formula 1. Button has already said he will continue to race with the possible new buyer but Ecclestone believes it would be better for the Briton to step out one year and wait for a top team to hire him.
"It's a pity because he's committed to Honda for three years," Ecclestone told the Telegraph. "He should be in any of the top teams. I'd rather see him wait to get a seat in one of those than race in an uncompetitive car."
