Button hoping English rain keeps falling image

(Inautonews.com/GMM) Jenson Button is hoping for more English weather at Silverstone this weekend.

Rain swept through Northamptonshire on Thursday ahead of the British grand prix, raising the McLaren driver’s hopes of a good result at home against the usually-dominant Red Bulls.

More rain is forecast on Friday and Saturday, ahead of a drier race-day Sunday.

“If the weather’s like this,” Button said on Thursday, “we’re going to have one hell of a race at the weekend. I’m hoping that this beautiful English summer weather continues!”
