The 2009 world champion has just signed a new contract with the famous British F1 team, which is also the manufacturer of the high performance MP4-12C sports car.

The car will be on the 2012 Le Mans 24 hour grid.

Button admitted at Suzuka that he would "love to give it (Le Mans) a go next year".

"Not sure if I would be allowed but yes I am very interested," he is quoted by the Guardian.

The 2012 Le Mans 24 hour race is scheduled for the weekend between F1's Canadian and Valencia rounds.
