It was either a slip, a joke or pure mischief when Jenson Button said in Singapore he would like "the Incredible Hulk" as his 2013 teammate.

The McLaren driver quickly explained that he wasn't really referring to Force India's Nico Hulkenberg, who has a similar nickname and has been linked with a move to a better team next year.

But Button has admitted to enjoying the wild speculation that is surrounding the uncertain plans of his current teammate, Lewis Hamilton.

He obviously doesn't mind adding his two cents, as well.

For instance, Button's manager also handles the career of Scot Paul di Resta, and Button said on Friday that the other Force India driver is "very, very talented".

Sauber's Sergio Perez is also strongly linked with Hamilton's seat.

"He is a quick learner," said Button. "He can't be bad if he is doing as well as he is."

If Hamilton does move to Mercedes, the conventional thinking is that Michael Schumacher will be pushed back into retirement.

But the seven time world champion has also been linked with Sauber, while Germany's Bild newspaper reports that Mercedes would be prepared to keep the great German on board as sporting director next year.
