Button says racing in F1 is his only interest

Jenson Button has once again expressed his desire to remain in Formula 1 after 2014, insisting the sport is his sole interest.

The 34-year-old is the most experienced driver on the grid, having competed in 260 grands prix with a mix of teams, and his desire to continue still exists.

"Right now, my interest is to race in F1," Button is quoted as saying by Autosport.

"You have a tough day and it hurts like hell because you want to be competitive and fighting, but then you have a reasonable qualifying and you are back on track.

"You want to race forever. In F1 the emotions are all over the place - it is highs, it is lows."

"I have lived my life like that for a long time and I want to continue my life like that."

Despite rumours swirling that he might be replaced next season, as well as being the second oldest driver on the grid after Kimi Raikkonen, he says he's still good enough to be in the sport.

"I am young and fast and enjoy what I do for a living, and I don't want that to change."
