Renault blocks Button testing

In a rather unsporting gesture, Renault Sport has decided to stop Jenson Button taking part int he two planned days of testing he has in December with British American Racing. The French team argued that Button remains under contract to Renault until December 31 and thus cannot test.

In most cases these days teams release a driver if he signs for another team. The fact that Renault is blocking the test for Button is hardly going to make much of a difference in terms of performance and one can only wonder what the logic behind it is...
