I'll admit, not sure where all of the 'jenson to retire' talk came from. But you're right, there seems to be a lot of articles, airtime etc dedicated to it. It must be quite tiresome, especially as the car isn't competitive,
I wonder if the media would be discussing such things if mclaren had made a good car and JB was racing at the front?
Now you are being a bit silly. Ofcourse not: if the McLaren was good, Jenson would be enjoying himself hence no retirement-stories. If you allow me to say so: you are being too negative about the media. If I worked in F1 as a journalist, and I would write an op-ed article about McLaren I would also ask the question: could this be Jensons last season? Not because he is not good enough, not because he is not motivated any more, but the constant disappointments are wearing him down, and he admits it himself.
EDIT: In the short piece on Autosport now, he is not uttering those doubts - or he tries to refute them.
