Why Button is embarking on his new challenge in the WEC

Jenson Button doesn’t need to go racing anymore. It’s a fascination with endurance competition that has led to his World Endurance quest with the Jota Porsche team

"I want to be in one of them!” That was Jenson Button’s thought at the Le Mans 24 Hours in 2023 as he thundered down the Mulsanne Straight and held on for dear life through the Porsche Curves aboard the Garage 56 Chevrolet Camaro LS1 NASCAR Cup Car.

And by “one of them”, he meant one of the cars from the Hypercar class that kept buzzing past in the battle for overall victory last June. The 2009 Formula 1 world champion has got his desire for this year as part of his first full season of racing since 2019 by taking on the World Endurance Championship with the Jota Porsche team.
