McLaren fans may be hoping that extra cash could hasten the arrival of new drivers to replace Jenson Button and Kevin Magnussen .Picture / AP McLaren boss Ron Dennis says his Formula 1 team may not be having much success on the track but its finances have rarely been stronger. The luxury car company reported an impressive swing back into profit last year thanks to the rising revenues from the sport and sponsorship.
Jenson Button has lauded Lewis Hamilton as "one of the quickest drivers ever to jump into a Formula 1 car" and praised his former team-mate's resilience and maturity during an often turbulent and controversial 2014 campaign. After partnering Hamilton for three years at McLaren following his 2009 title success with Brawn, and with more than 250 races under his belt, few are better placed to assess Hamilton's standing in the F1 pantheon than the 34-year-old Button.
The 79-year-old was chief of Europe's biggest bank Santander, a major Ferrari sponsor and closely aligned with Fernando Alonso. "Ferrari will always remember him as one of its most enthusiastic fans and it is thanks to him that we enjoyed such great support from Santander," said departing Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo on Wednesday.
