No :duckie: at the most successful motorsports marque ever

"I know Jenson from my time at BMW [Button began his F1 career in a BMW-engined Williams in 2000] and he is a good guy, but at the moment there is no contact," Engzinger told AUTOSPORT.

He revealed that Porsche would go into next season with an unchanged line-up in its two full-season entries in the WEC and that Mark Webber, Timo Bernhard, Brendon Hartley, Neel Jani, Romain Dumas and Marc Lieb were already all under contract for 2015.

"We are happy with our six drivers and the atmosphere we have in the team, so we have confirmed their contracts for next season already," he said.

Haven't posted in the lounge in a bit but just found this over at Ferdinand Porsche magazine...

Porsche has just announced a third 919 entry for Le Mans 2015. Anyone who has been following the Jenson Button Porsche rumours will be completely unsurprised and hopefully excited by the news of a third LMP1 entry, as it clears the way for a certain could-be ex-F1 driver to join the Porsche Le Mans 2015 team for the 24-Hours and maybe more.

The additional chassis also allows a few of the GT drivers to step up to the big one for the Le Mans 24-Hour, and means Stuttgart will be mob-handed at La Sarthe next year. The pitlane will be a hive of Porsche activity with three Porsche 919 Hybrids and perhaps another eight Porsche 911 RSRs buzzing around the place if 2014 is anything to go by.
