McLaren deny Button triathlon leg injury reports 29 April, 2014 McLaren on Tuesday denied reports that Jenson Button is nursing a leg injury ahead of next weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix. The 2009 world champion pulled out of a triathlon on the Canary Islands last weekend with reported muscle problems during the half-marathon. “Jenson decided not to complete the Canary Islands triathlon, but he is fit and well and has, contrary to a few rogue media reports, no injuries of any kind,” a McLaren spokesman told us on Tuesday. “Indeed, he is driving in our simulator today and is looking forward to participating in the forthcoming Spanish Grand Prix.” (GMM) Subbed by AJN.
