Lowe loss not distracting - Button

Jenson Button says Paddy Lowe leaving the team will not be a distraction for McLaren ahead of the new Formula 1 season.

The 33-year-old from Somerset said Lowe's move was "part and parcel of F1" and praised his successor, Tim Goss, who designed the 2012 McLaren car that won seven races.

The 2009 world champion admits he has been checking out the other teams in testing and names Mercedes, Ferrari, and Lotus as the teams that have looked quick so far.
