Here’s Another Far-fetched Rumor About A New Top Gear Cohost

Would you watch the show if this F1 driver was a presenter?

Afterthe traumatic experience of Jeremy Clarkson's "Top Gear" firing and Chris Evans gainingthe reigns to one of the best automotive television shows ever created, we knew that therewould be a lot of rumors about what was going to happen next. According to the DailyMail, Jenson Button—yes, the McLaren Honda F1 Driver—is currently in therunning to join the show as a presenter. Asource claims that “an announcement is imminent.” Button’s F1 season has been dreadful, but the Brit hasn’t expressed any interest in leaving the sport.

Button is said to be friends with Evans and actually appearedon the show twice when Clarkson was still running things. Withhis F1 car being dreadfully slow and unreliable, anything is possible. Buttonwould bring a breath of fresh air and his incredible driving capabilities withhim, which would make the show more entertaining. But we’re not sure if hewould be our first choice as a presenter. Aswith all rumors, take this one with a large helping of salt.
