Button to fly flag for England in RoC

Jenson Button will carry home hopes at the 2015 London Race of Champions, it is announced.
Jenson Button has become the latest F1 driver to sign up for the annual Race of Champions later this month, flying the flag for Team England on home soil in London.

The 2009 world champion has competed at the end-of-season RoC on four previous occasions, though hasn't done so since 2011. However, to celebrate the event's return to British soil at London's former Olympic stadium venue in Stratford, Button will be one of four English drivers flying the flag for home fans.

Looking to go further than his semi-final placing of 2009, Button will be teamed with sportscar racer Alex Buncombe in one of two English line-ups being entered for the Nations' Cup, with Jason Plato and another unnamed driver pairing up for the other.

Button is the latest F1 driver to commit to the RoC this year, joining Sebastian Vettel, Daniel Ricciardo, Felipe Massa and Nico Hulkenberg in representing the championship alongside representatives from rallying, IndyCar and MotoGP.

This year's Race of Champions will take place between the final two rounds of the 2015 Formula 1 World Championship in Brazil and Abu Dhabi.

HomeRule4England: Shame he wasn't allowed to actually fly the English flag on his car...
Try and get Scotland to carry the Union Jack when they are driving for Scotland - Bet Tai would have something to say about that! Who on Earth made the English Team carry a Union Jack FFS?
