Having traded cars with V8 Supercar driver Jamie Whincup in Melbourne last year, Jenson Button is set to get another taste of Australia's premier racing category in the build up to the season opening Grand Prix in Melbourne.
The exchange, a result of a both drivers links to Vodafone, will see Button get behind the wheel of Craig Lowndes Holden Commodore V8 Supercar while in return Lowndes will get the chance to taste a 2010 spec McLaren.
This is to happen the Tuesday before the Australian GP at Mt Panorama Bathurst
The fastest recorded lap around the 6.2km circuit is 2:06.801
set by Lowndes during practice for last year's Bathurst 1000
they say he will be driving at "near racing speeds" what time do you think he will be able to set in the McLaren?
Albert park: 5.303 km 2010 fastest lap
McLaren F1 1:29.291
Shanghai International 5.451 km
V8 1:51.056 (2005 race)
McLaren F1 1:34.979 (2010 q3)
Mt Panorama: 6.2 km
v8 2:06.801 (2010 practice)
McLaren F1 ?:??.???
I'm thinking 1:45 might be possible
