Button not for sale for any price

Fry emphasises long-term commitment
Even for a staggering wad of cash, Honda says it would not sell Jenson Button to a rival squad.
“Not for 100 million (Pounds Sterling),” Team Principal Nick Fry, faced with speculation that the Englishman is growing weary of Honda's lagging speed, told the Mirror.

He added: “Not for 150 million.”

At Silverstone on Saturday, Button embarrassingly slumped out of qualifying in the opening fifteen minutes, with Fry blaming Stewards' decision to call him into the weigh bridge at an inopportune moment.

But earlier this weekend, the 26-year-old racer suggested to the press that he might be ruthless in his quest to win the F1 title.

“Jenson's absolutely not for sale,” Fry continued, hinting at a long-term contract signed by Button last year. “We got married last year ... and divorce is not on the horizon. I'd be amazed if Jenson is looking around.”
