Button linked with Top Gear presenter role

Jenson Button has been linked with a shock move from the F1 grid to the television presenter's chair.

The Daily Mail reports that the veteran grand prix driver could be part of the new lineup for the popular British motoring programme Top Gear.

Earlier this year, the BBC sacked Top Gear's controversial presenter Jeremy Clarkson, and co-hosts Richard Hammond and James May said they would also not return.

Button's future in F1 is currently the subject of speculation, as McLaren-Honda holds a one-sided 'option' on his services for 2016. He has also been linked with a switch to Williams.

The Daily Mail claims Button is currently "in talks with the BBC about co-presenting Top Gear".

"An announcement is imminent," a source reportedly said.
