Despite not completing a half-marathon, the Mclaren number one driver is still set to start the Spanish GP.

Apr.29 (GMM) McLaren on Tuesday denied reports Jenson Button is nursing a leg injury ahead of next weekend's Spanish Grand Prix.

The 2009 world champion pulled out of a triathlon on the Canary Islands last weekend with reported muscle problems during the half-marathon.

"Jenson decided not to complete the Canary Islands triathlon, but he is fit and well and has, contrary to a few rogue media reports, no injuries of any kind," a McLaren spokesman told us on Tuesday.

"Indeed, he is driving in our simulator today and is looking forward to participating in the forthcoming Spanish Grand Prix."
