Hamilton and Button to drive Prost McLaren

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button will drive a McLaren-TAG MP4-2C of the same type Alain Prost used to win the 1986 world championship next month.

The pair will take turns driving the car at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

They will also drive a 2008-spec Mercedes-powered MP4-23 which Hamilton won the world championship with two years ago.

Last year’s world championship-winning machine, the Brawn BGP 001, will also be there. But as the car is owned by Mercedes it will not be driven by Button – instead Nick Heidfeld and Nico Rosberg will drive the car.

A full list of Formula 1 cars at the 2010 Goodwood Festival of Speed will be published here shortly. The Festival runs from July 2nd – 4th.
