JENSON BUTTON JOINS HIS GT3 TEAM AT SILVERSTONE FOLLOWING BLANCPAIN GT SERIES WEEKEND

15 May 2019

Fresh from his TV duties for Sky F1 in Barcelona on Sunday, Jenson Button arrived in Silverstone on Monday to spend the day with his Honda GT3 Team and drivers.

The Team stayed on site following the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup event over the weekend where their #22 Honda NSX GT3 Evo with drivers Struan Moore, Philipp Frommenwiler & Matt McMurry again ran strong in the Silver Cup ending up 6th in the class with valuable points to hold on to 5th place in the Championship after the first two rounds.

The 2009 F1 World Champion had hoped to attend one of the early rounds of the Blancpain GT Series but clashing commitments of his Super GT campaign in Japan and television work in F1 has restricted his presence so far.

“It was great to come along and catch up with all the guys after the Silverstone race. It was a shame I couldn’t be there over the weekend but I’m obviously following closely every session when the boys are on track! There’s been some super close, exciting racing in Blancpain so far this year and it’s been great to see a strong start to the season for us with such a new combination of team and drivers with the Honda NSX Evo; I’m sure the first podium finish must just around the corner!

It was nice to catch up with Struan and Philipp although a shame that our other driver, Matt McMurry had to be back in California and missed the day.” commented Jenson.
