Jenson Button To Participate In 2018/19 World Endurance Championship Super Season

Jenson Button To Participate In 2018/19 World Endurance Championship Super Season”

As well as competing at Le Mans, Button will also race in front of his home fans at Silverstone later this summer as part of the World Endurance Championship. The former McLaren teammates will be competing in the LMP1 category at Le Mans. "My partners this year will be Mikhail Aleshin and Vitaly Petrov". Hopefully he isn't spreading himself too thin, and fans both at home and overseas will see him add to his already impressive Formula 1 trophy haul. He will perform in the crew with our strongest pilots, Mikhail Aleshin and Vitaly Petrov, in the auto of the highest category, LMP1. The BR1 has been developed by SMP-allied BR Engineering and Italian chassis specialist Dallara.

"I'm happy to welcome Jenson Button as a part of our team. We're sure our line-up is one of the best and most competitive in the FIA WEC".

Button has said that the third part of the triple crown - the Indianapolis 500, to go with Monaco, or alternatively the F1 title, and Le Mans - is too unsafe to contemplate.

"My teammates will be Aleshin and Petrov, who I know very well from his racing in F1, and Mikhail from his IndyCar exploits". I think that with them and the experience that we have accumulated in different racing series, as well as with the fantastic experience of the team in endurance race [s], we will have an excellent chance to fight in the forefront and [contend] to win.

After Le Mans, Button will stay with the team to complete a full FIA World Endurance Championship "Super-Season" campaign which concludes in 2019 with a second visit to Le Mans. There'll be a PH presence at that event, too, but for those of you looking to see Button closer to home, his WEC commitment also means that he (and Alonso) will be in the United Kingdom in August, when round three of the "Super Season" takes place at Silverstone.

"This is very good news for all motorsport fans, especially those in the United Kingdom who will see Jenson at the 6 Hours of Silverstone in August", said Neveu. "To welcome a champion of his standing and reputation is great for the whole WEC paddock".
