Jenson Button has been taken to hospital after complaining of an 'eye-irritation' during second free practice for the German Grand Prix.

The Briton completed 16 laps en route to the eighth fastest lap time of FP2, but was forced to curtail his track time and visit the medical centre after developing the ailment.

He has since been advised to go to hospital in the nearby city of Mannheim for a 'precautionary check-up', according to McLaren.
