Ex Formula 1 boss and team owner Eddie Jordan has joined a growing chorus of people calling for Jenson Button to leave Honda. Eddie Jordan sold his team in 2004 and the team has now morphed into Spyker F1.
At the launch of his autobiography, Jordan said he thought Button would be doing an even better job than current wonder-boy Lewis Hamilton if he was driving the McLaren. “Someone, somewhere at Honda has seriously screwed up,” Jordan explained. “One of the saddest things is to see a couple of great drivers floundering around where they are on the grid, scrambling for points – it’s ridiculous.”
“If I could regenerate some of the Jordan fire and have use of the Honda budget and the quality of the engine, I think I could win. I could be persuaded, given the resources they have. If I was Jenson’s manager, I would be having very hard discussions about what their plan is. He must feel terribly down but he must have seen it happening. He has to look carefully at his position.”
