Sky Sports today announced that Jenson Button has joined their Formula One line-up for the 2019 season.
The 2009 world champion was part of Sky’s coverage of the British Grand Prix during the 2018 season and will see an increased role with Sky F1 during coverage of all 21 races next year.
“I’m incredibly excited to join up with the Sky Sports team again,” said Button.
“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.”
A winner of 15 grands prix with 50 podium finishes, Button’s last F1 race was at last year’s Monaco GP for McLaren.
Button will join Sky’s team of award-winning drivers and pundits including Martin Brundle, Damon Hill, Paul Di Resta, Anthony Davidson, Johnny Herbert, Nico Rosberg, Ted Kravitz, David Croft, Natalie Pinkham, Rachel Brookes, and host Simon Lazenby.
Sky will show all 21 races of the 2019 season exclusively live, with the exception of the British Grand Prix, which will also be shown live on Channel 4.
