Former Formula One world champion Jenson Button will own and drive for a team in the inaugural Extreme E motor racing season this year.
Button has founded the JBXE team for the series, which features electric SUVs racing in off-road locations.
The announcement follows Button’s unveiling as a senior adviser to his ex-Formula One team Williams last week.
“JBXE has been a long time coming and I’m both delighted and proud to announce its formation and entry into the inaugural Extreme E Championship,” the British driver said.
Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg also own teams that will compete in the five-race series, which starts in Saudi Arabia in April, but unlike Button they will not drive for them.
