Kevin Magnussen has admitted that he has been approached by other teams, as Mclaren dither on their 2016 line-up.

In an interview to F1i, Magnussen said:

“Yes we can say other [F1] teams have reached out, it’s no secret," Magnussen said. "So I do think I still have a future.

“You can always talk to people. It is quite sensitive … Not many, but some interesting ones. There aren’t many Formula One teams available actually - some interesting ones."

Options for Mclaren are to either retain Button's services for another year or to take on Stoffel Vandoorne who currently leads the GP2 Championship or Kevin Magnussen who had 12 point finishes during the 2014 season for Mclaren. Meanwhile Fernando Alonso has a 3 year contract and is looking more than likely to be there for next year, despite being photographed leaving Red Bull's Energy Station during the Belgian Grand Prix.

  • I highly doubt Alonso would be in talks with Red Bull. They seem too happy with their current drivers, and Alonso has said several times that he is very intent on staying with McLaren's project. But I guess nothing is cut in stone.
