Retired former F1 champion Jenson Button is ready to make a full-time return to the track

After announcing his retirement, Button – who is currently a reserve driver for former team McLaren – has only made one return to the track this season

He stood in for Fernando Alonso May’s Monaco Grand Prix, while the Spaniard was at the Indy 500.

However, during an interview with CNN, Button admitted he’s keen on a return to racing next year.

He said: “This year has been really good for me because I’ve been able to reflect on everything and I’ve really got that love of racing back, I’ve got that bug.

“I did a race in August in Japan in a race category called Super GT and I absolutely loved it.

“That racing bug was back and I had the biggest smile on my face, so there’s a good chance I could be racing in Super GT in Japan next year.”

Button, who won the world title with Brawn in 2009, admitted that his racing career had not been the same following the death of his father in 2014.

“Since his death my career in Formula One was very different, it felt very hollow.

“F1 had always been with my dad so suddenly with him gone it completely changed my view of the sport.

“I wouldn’t be racing if it wasn’t for him.”
