Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Jen­son But­ton will join Sky Sports as a TV pun­dit for all 21 races of the 2019 F1 sea­son. The 2009 F1 cham­pion worked for the broad­caster at this year’s Bri­tish Grand Prix and will be a part of the chan­nel’s pre­sent­ing team full-time from the start of next sea­son. “I’m in­cred­i­bly ex­cited to join up with the Sky Sports team again,” said But­ton, who clinched the Su­per GT ti­tle this year on his re­turn to full-time rac­ing fol­low­ing his F1 re­tire­ment at the end of 2016. “Work­ing with them at Sil­ver­stone this year gave me a taste of tele­vi­sion broad­cast­ing, one that I thor­oughly en­joyed and look for­ward to again in 2019.”
