Caution over Button

Jenson Button is not taking part in this week's F1 testing following his crash in Monte Carlo. Jenson had a full medical examination with the FIA Medical Delegate Professor Sid Watkins and BAR said that "it was considered more prudent for him to sit out his scheduled one day test in Monza in order for him to concentrate on being fully fit to compete in Montreal."

Button said on Sunday that he could not remember much about the accident. The FIA is currently in the process of introducing new processes to deal with concussions and the caution being shown may well be related to this.
