Jenson Button has stated that he would like to participate in the Le Mans 24 Hours again after competing in the race for the first time in 2018.

The British driver retired from Formula One at the end of the 2016 season, but returned for a one-off appearance in the 2017 Monaco Grand Prix, filling in for Fernando Alonso at McLaren when the Spaniard participated in the Indianapolis 500.

Button has since dabbled in other forms of racing, like as Super GT and the World Endurance Championship.

He got his Le Mans début in 2016 with the SMP Squad, but owing to mechanical failures, the team was compelled to leave their vehicle in the closing hour of the race.

Button is still hoping for a second opportunity despite the race’s tough finish.

“I’d love to do it again in the right situation,” Button told the BBC.

“It’s a bit tricky because with Le Mans, the amount of time that goes into the testing and simulator work is massive.

“I also work with Lotus very closely, so to work with another manufacturer at Le Mans is out of the question.

“I’m pushing Lotus as much as I can to get involved in GT racing. They have a GT4 car they’re producing this year, so maybe I’ll do some GT4 racing in that for fun over in the States. We’ll wait and see.”

“It’s such a wonderful vibe, I really like Le Mans,” the 2009 Formula One World Champion continued.

Button discloses that he has other motorsport intentions

Since his exit from Formula One, Button has kept himself occupied.

The driver is a regular on Sky Sports F1 and has his own Extreme E squad. Furthermore, he will compete in the Nitro Rallycross competition this summer.

Button’s intentions don’t stop there; he wants to come back to the renowned Spa-Francorchamps venue for the 24 Hours of Spa race.

Nevertheless, because he is based in America, Button says that his responsibilities can be more difficult to fit in when he travels.

“I own a team in GT racing, called Rocket Motorsport, Rocket RJN. I have two other partners in the business and one of them is my school friend, Chris Buncombe,” he explained.

“He has been pushing me to race in the Spa 24 Hours in GT3 where, if I can actually do some testing, I will do it.

“But it’s getting the testing in which is really difficult. Living on the other side of the world, it’s tough, I can’t be travelling all the time.”
