Ah it must be that time of year where there’s no racing on and rumours about who’s going where begin circling. Yes, the silly season appears to have officially begun. Just a few days ago there were rumours of Jenson Button joining Williams and now it’s that he’ll be joining Chris Evans as part of a new-look Top Gear!
The news has been reported by most of the British press today so presumably the news does have some kind of truth to it… or there’s just nothing better to talk about at the moment. The Daily Mail however say “an announcement is imminent.” Sure it is.
Button has appeared on Top Gear twice before as a Star in the Reasonably Priced Car but a presenter role would be a much more demanding one and presumably couldn’t happen with Button still in F1.
So why not start some Button to WEC rumours while we’re at it?
