The F1 interest in the 2024 Daytona 24 Hours


2009 Formula 1 World Champion Jenson Button is just one of nine former Grand Prix drivers set to take part in this weekend’s Daytona 24 Hours.

Button is gunning for overall victory in the GTP class aboard his Wayne Taylor Racing with Andretti Acura machine, being paired with Colton Herta, Louis Deletraz and Jordan Taylor in the #40.

Button’s #40 Acura is to roll off in fifth place after qualifying, with the #31 Whelan Cadillac Racing of Pipo Derani, Tom Blomqvist and one-time Grand Prix starter Jack Aitken on pole.

The race itself begins at 18:40 GMT on Saturday 27th January, with scenes for the as-yet-untitled F1 film staring Brad Pitt and produced by Lewis Hamilton being shot across the event.

The fight for overall victory in Florida is set to be tough, with Button being joined with IndyCar champions Scott Dixon and Josef Newgarden in the GTP class, multiple Le Mans 24 Hour victors as well as 2022 Indianapolis 500 winner Marcus Ericsson.
