Jenson Button has allayed fears that McLaren could drop down the Formula 1 pecking order in the coming years, despite ending the season without a podium finish for the first time since 1980.
The 2009 World champion was quick to play down comparisons with the downfall of Williams since their dominant period in the 1990s.
He was quoted by The Telegraph as saying: "There is a good atmosphere and a belief in the team.
"We have the resources that Williams don't. Money is king in a sport like Formula 1. The same in football in a way."
