Jenson Button will stay on in the long term for the McLaren team, having signed a multi-year contract extension today.

The 2009 world champion joined the squad in 2010, and has won 4 races so far, and is currently leading teammate Lewis Hamilton in the driver’s standings.

This contract has been rumoured for some time now, and the McLaren team finally confirmed the deal today.

Button was full of praise for the British team, saying that he is confident of winning more world championships:

"I've never felt more at home at a team than I do at Vodafone McLaren Mercedes. I've 
won four of the greatest races of my life here, I'm currently lying second in the 
drivers' world championship, and I feel that I'm driving better than ever.

You can only achieve that with the right level of support - and I truly believe that 
the passion and determination to win are stronger here at Vodafone McLaren Mercedes 
than anywhere else.

As a grand prix driver, those are incredibly powerful feelings to share and be part 
of, and they've only reinforced my desire to commit my long-term future to this team.

I've made no secret of my ambition to continue winning races and world championships, 
and I fully believe this is the place where I can achieve those aims."

It is not clear at the moment how long the new contract will last.
