Jenson Button was not involved in a road car accident after qualifying third in Hungary, his management and the McLaren team have clarified.

Hackers gained access to the 31-year-old Briton's personal website late on Saturday and posted a photo of a heavily damaged red car and information that Button is in a "critical condition" in Budapest's AEK hospital.
