Button is driving the McLaren on a one-off basis at the Monaco Grand Prix after Alonso opted to drive in the Indy 500.
The Spaniard qualified fifth for his first ever race in the Indy Car series in America, which gets under way later today.

But he took time out to wish his old teammate well as Button waited in the pit-lane to start his race.
Alonso called in from the US to speak to Button on his team radio as the British driver sat behind the wheel of the car.
The Spaniard said: “Hi Jenson, I just want to wish you good luck, it was a great drive in qualifying and look after my car.”
Button responded: “Ah hi Fernando, that’s great. I am going to pee in your seat.”
Button was forced to start the race from the pit lane after McLaren had to use the floor of his car to repair the car of teammate Stoffel Vandoorne.
