British racing driver Jenson Button has confirmed he will make a return to full-time racing next year.

The 37-year-old from Frome, Somerset, has taken a sabbatical this year following him leaving Formula One at the end of the 2016 season, but drove at the Monaco Grand Prix this year while McLaren driver Fernando Alonso drove at the Indianapolis 500.
