Jenson Button and McLaren have played down fears the 2009 world champion is not fully fit ahead of their home grand prix at Silverstone this weekend.

Button, 31, was scheduled to drive one of the Woking based team's F1 single seaters at the Goodwood festival of speed but instead switched to a road car in order to protect a minor knee injury.
