Jenson Button is hoping his fans will help turn Silverstone pink at the British Grand Prix in July by buying a t-shirt he has designed to pay tribute to his father John, who passed away at the beginning of the year.

Sold on the McLaren’s team’s website in support of the Henry Surtees Foundation,, this Limited Edition unisex T-shirt commemorates the popular figure in the F1 paddock who was an unwavering pillar of support throughout his son’s career; his is missed by the Formula 1 community at large.

Sales of this T-shirt will direct proceeds towards the Henry Surtees Foundation, which supports those affected by brain or physical injuries caused by motorsport-related accidents. For more information on the Henry Surtees Foundation please visit
