    SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, Belgium -- Jenson Button says he is close to making a decision on his future but, during a press conference ahead of the Belgian Grand Prix weekend, was not willing to drop any hints on what it might involve. Cheap MLB Jerseys .An exit from current team McLaren looks increasingly likely for Button, with GP2 champion and current reserve driver Stoffel Vandoorne waiting in the wings for promotion.

Leaving F1 is also an option for the Briton, who has not ruled out a move to the World Endurance Championship where he would be competing alongside the likes of ex-F1 drivers Mark Webber, Sebastien Buemi and Anthony Davidson.Im almost there, Button said when asked if he had made a decision on his future.
