One starts on pole position for his home British GP, the other is making his debut as a Sky pundit, and both of Britain’s most recent world champions feature in an exclusive, must-watch conversation in the build-up to Sunday’s Silverstone race live on Sky Sports F1.
The former team-mates are reunited in a relaxed and wide-ranging chat as Button caught up with a jubilant Hamilton following the Mercedes driver’s record sixth British GP pole position on Saturday night.
The interview features in Sky F1’s build-up show from 12.30pm. The race starts at 2.10pm, with the action also simulcast on Sky One.
Up for discussion between Lewis and Jenson:
- Hamilton’s emotions after the lap he described as the toughest of his career
- The intensity of the title fight with Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari
- Whether Button retired too early – and Jenson’s advice for Lewis
- And more!
A victory for Hamilton in front of the packed Silverstone grandstands on Sunday afternoon would not only set a new record for six wins at the British GP but also ensure he takes back over the leadership of the Drivers’ Championship.
“The pressure is just insane,” Hamilton tells Button.
“It’s more than I felt any other year.”
