Jenson Button does not believe in luck - good or bad - or in whether he is jinxed when it comes to the British Grand Prix. But there aren't many Formula 1 world champions who have been as unfortunate in their home event as the 36-year-old veteran.
Button goes into this weekend's race at Silverstone still waiting to experience what he is sure would be one of the emotional highs of his near-17-year F1 career. It is an astonishing fact that in his 16 previous British GPs, Button has never even stood on the podium, never mind its top step.
Of the 25 countries in which Button has raced in F1, he has finished on the podium in 19 of them - but Britain, for whatever reason, has always eluded him.
