Nice To See You Again, Jenson! 

McLaren Honda F1 star stops off in Swindon before British Grand Prix
 
Former F1 World Champion Jenson Button took a break from preparing for the British Grand Prix this weekend by paying a flying visit to the Honda factory in South Marston.
 
After arriving in a Civic Type R, the 36-year-old took a tour of the factory, met employees and signed autographs for staff and competition winners who had won the chance to meet him.

It's not the first time Button has stopped-off in Swindon, with his first visit as a Grand Prix racer coming in 2004 when driving for the BAR Honda team alongside Takuma Sato.
 
The pair spent the afternoon thrilling factory staff with a car demonstration on the former runway at RAF Wroughton.
 
Stunt double:
Button and Sato show off their skills in the
