Button and Hamilton - McLaren teammates in 2010

The 2009 F1 World Champion Jenso Button has signed a three-year $30 million deal for McLaren thus becoming team mate with Lewis Hamilton, the 2008 F1 World Champ. Hamilton, 24 and Button, 29 are both British. It was heard the Button's winning team - Brawn GP - was willing to offer Button a double salary to keep him for 2010 season but the terms and conditions have been rejected. Coincidentally the german carmaker Mercedes announced the cancelation of their contract with McLaren and the new association with Brawn GP. Button deal took place after the former world champ Kimi Raikkonen failed to have an agreement with McLaren and therefore will not race in F1 2010. Raikkonen - former Ferrari driver - decided to race in World Rally Championship.
