Jessica Ennis-Hill has wished Jenson Button luck ahead of the British Grand Prix this weekend at Silverstone.

The athletics star told her official Facebook page: “Good luck to my fellow Santander ambassador Jenson Button this weekend at Silverstone – I can’t be there as I’m training.”

Button, nor teammate Nico Rosberg, have finished on the podium so far this season in what has been a disappointing campaign for Mercedes.

But Button will be hoping that he can have his best performance so far this season in-front of an expectant home-crowd.

Button is currently 10th in the Formula One driver’s standings whilst fellow British hopes Lewis Hamilton and Paul di Resta are currently placed 4th and 8th, respectively.

Ennis-Hill, meanwhile, is in training for the upcoming World Championships in Moscow, as she looks to recover from an Achilles injury - the competition takes place in August.

The Olympic gold medalist will be amongst Britain’s major medal hopes in the Championships.
