Jenson Button Switching To Le Mans

Written By:

McLaren Formula One team racing driver, Jenson Button could switch to racing cars in Le Mans next year if he loses his McLaren seat.

He is still waiting for confirmation of his Formula One plan for the next season.

Richard Goddard, McLaren, manager said "Jenson is an incredibly competitive racing driver who wants to race. He's too good to sit at the back of the F1 grid, so he either gets a competitive car in F1 or he goes to get one elsewhere."

The 34 year old former World Champion has already had talks with Porsche. Mark Webber, is already driving for Porsche in the world endurance championship and Le Mans 24 hour race.

The German manufacturer is yet to finalize its season lineup drivers for 2015.

Goddard said, "The world endurance championship is a formidable series that is gaining strength and Mark going there has added a lot."

Button, is undoubtedly the most experienced F1 driver at the moment with more than 263 Grand Prix starts under his belt and 15 wins.

Button first joined the F1 team in 2000 and won the World Championship in 2009, racing for the Brawn GP Team.
