Button confirmed for Goodwood

Button confirmed for Goodwood

McLaren driver Jenson Button has confirmed that he will take part in the Goodwood Festival of Speed next month.

The 2009 Drivers' Championship winner has taken part in the Festival of Speed on 14 previous occasions and has driven a variety of cars, including Alain Prost's 1986 title-winning car, a P1 supercar and a 1970 Can-Am McLaren M8D.

At this year's event, McLaren will have the M23, the MP4/2 and the MP4-26 F1 machines attend.

"Goodwood is one of the highlights of my season," Button said about his participation.

"I've had the chance to get behind the wheel of some incredible historic racing cars there, which I'd never have been able to drive otherwise, and to meet some of the most enthusiastic fans, who have given me a tremendous amount of support over the years. I'm really looking forward to it."

Button is one of three former F1 champions to take part in this year's Festival of Speed after fellow Briton John Surtees and Brazilian Emerson Fittipaldi also confirmed their participation.
