Jenson button: I want to take part in the film “Le Mans”, but not “Indy 500”

Дженсон Баттон: Я хочу принять участие в NASCAR и «Ле-Мане», но не «Инди 500»

After his brief return to F1 at the Monaco Grand Prix Jenson button admitted that he is not eager again to take part in the Royal race, what can be said about the other categories.

Button ended his career in F1 after a season in 2016, however, the decision of Fernando Alonso to perform in the Indy 500 again forced the British to be in the pits of F1 as the current pilot.

In General, Jenson first drove the McLaren-Honda MCL32, confidently spent the weekend, but his race ended with a collision with Pascal Wehrlein, the culprit which was a button.

“I think about other categories, Yes,’ said Jenson. – Now I get pleasure from what you are doing and are going to focus all his attention on this kind of activity, to achieve the desired”.

This week Jenson button test car Super GT Honda, and in August will show the McLaren F1 car at the event on the track Laguna Seca.

The Englishman noticed that, unlike his former partner, it is not at all interested in the prospect of performing in the Indy 500, unlike, for example, NASCAR or “Le Mans.”

“Honestly, I never thought about “Indie,” continued button. – I was surprised that Fernando wanted to be there, but tastes differ. We like different discipline, because we are primarily racers, not F1 pilots.

I would like to take part in the “Le Mans”, I think there you can get a wonderful experience in no less than a pleasant atmosphere. For this you need a suitable opportunity, which was at the time, Nico [Hulkenberg].

It would be great to try his hand at NASCAR. This year Jimmie Johnson invited me to one of the races, and I had a great time and enjoyed the show, very different from other types of Motorsport – and it does not detract from its complexity. So, it can be.

I am also interested in other categories: for example, rally-cross, but for several reasons this list never included IndyCar”.
