Jenson Button to join Sky Sports F1 for British Grand Prix
2nd July 2018
This weekend, 2009 Formula 1 World Champion Jenson Button is to join Sky Sports, the world' leading F1 broadcaster, for the 2018 British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
Button, whose F1 career spanned almost two decades, won the 2009 Formula 1 World Championship driving for Brawn GP. Having competed in 17 British Grand Prix, Button knows every inch of the Silverstone track inside out, and will provide Sky Sports F1 viewers with a unique insight on the race.
Joint-second in the list of all-time F1 starts, with 306 races, Button will add to the depth of knowledge and expertise across the Sky Sports team, where he will be joined by fellow F1 legends and Sky Sports F1® regulars, Martin Brundle and Damon Hill, alongside Johnny Herbert, Paul Di Resta and Anthony Davidson.
Jenson Button said: "The British Grand Prix is an iconic part of the sporting landscape in this country, and as my home race, was always one that was really special for me. I'm really looking forward to being part of the Sky Sports F1 team, and to having the opportunity to ask questions of the drivers, rather than answering them!"
Sky Sports is the only place to see all 21 races from the 2018 Formula 1 season.
