Jenson Button remained tight-lipped about his Formula One future amid reports he would announce his retirement from the sport in Japan.

The 2009 world champion hinted after the last race in Singapore that he may end his 16-year career in motor racing's elite category after he failed to reach the chequered flag.

But quizzed on his future in Japan, Button, in the midst of a lacklustre campaign, said he could not comment on his whereabouts for next season.

"I can't give you anything else since the last race," said Button. "There is no more information to give you so you are going to have to wait a little while, I am sorry to say.

"We are in good talks, the team and myself, and that is it."
