Button to start Monaco from the pit lane

Jenson Button will start his one-off Formula 1 return from the pit lane after McLaren opted to change his set-up post qualifying.

The British racer was set to start the 78-lap grand prix from the very back of the grid after incurring a 15-place grid penalty on Saturday.

Honda were, for the fifth time already this season, forced to change the car's MGH-U and turbocharger leading to the automatic penalty.

However, McLaren decided overnight to change the set-up of Button's car as well meaning he broke parc ferme rules.

He will therefore start from the pit lane.
