Button to sit out practice over back pain

Briton Jenson Button will sit out this afternoon's second practice session for the British Grand Prix after twinging his back in the morning.
The injury is a recurrence of the one he suffered in his first corner accident at Indianapolis last month, when his car was sent airborne after making contact with teammate Rubens Barrichello.
"He is experiencing the same twinge in his back that he experienced as a result of the first corner incident at Indianapolis," a team spokeswoman said.
"As a precaution Jenson will rest this afternoon. At this point there is no reason to suggest he won't be back in the car tomorrow."
Honda are allowed to use test driver Christian Klien in the second session, but it is yet unclear if they will.
