Jenson Button will do 'right thing' for team - Martin Whitmarsh

McLaren team boss Martin Whitmarsh says Jenson Button has approached him in regard to team orders and has said he will do something if it is in the "best interests" of the team.

Whitmarsh calls Button an "extraordinary" guy and a great team player and says he would never have gone to the 2009 world champion with the same request.

With Lewis Hamilton's future still up in the air Whitmarsh refuses to be drawn on the subject, although he does say they have not looked at anyone to replace Hamilton should he leave the team.
