Jenson Button has revealed that he and McLaren are yet to sign a contract for the 2014 season and beyond.

The Briton wishes to remain with the Woking squad despite a difficult season which currently sees him in ninth with just 39 points.

"I think I have a contract for next year but I don't think it has a signature on it yet!" Button revealed.

"I really want to be here next year. You might think 'Wow, that's strange after this season', but I think this season has been good for us in a way. I think this will be a much stronger team next year so I want to be here next year. But - as you say - you haven't heard the confirmation of that yet from the team. I think you have to wait for that."

With several seats potentially becoming available, Button says Ferrari offers the greatest opportunity for another driver.

"I think Red Bull is done. I think the Ferrari seat is a great opportunity for any driver in F1. To get the opportunity to race for a team like Ferrari is very exciting; what they've achieved, the passion within the team, the culture is very interesting, so I think it's a great opportunity and hopefully somebody who deserves it will get the drive."
