McLaren's Jenson Button has shrugged off the recent loss of technical director Paddy Lowe, who is set to join Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes next season.

Whilst the 2009 champion admitted he was sad to see a 'friend' leave, he has full confidence in his replacement, Tim Goss.

"Having Tim in the position is fantastic," he said. He is the guy who designed the 2012 car that won seven races last year so he knows what he's doing.

"I really like Paddy. It's been good fun working with him over the past three years, in a working relationship but also as a friend.

"He's a good guy, a fun character. But things change and he wants to try a new challenge and fair play to him. He's got to think about number one, which is himself, and good luck to him.

"But I didn't come here because Paddy or Lewis was here. I came here because this is McLaren, the heritage is here, the history is here."
