McLaren team principal Martin Whitmarsh has confirmed Jenson Button will be with the team next season.

Following the Belgian Grand Prix just under a fortnight ago, Button urged Whitmarsh to finally take up the option on his contract for 2012 given his desire to remain with the Woking-based marque.

Whitmarsh has now confirmed the 31-year-old will see out the final year of the three-year deal he signed at the end of 2009 following his title-winning campaign with Brawn GP.

Whitmarsh said: "Jenson will be with us next year. "There is nothing that needs to be sorted."
