2009 Formula One World Champion Jenson Button will return to the Race of Champions in December and has already eyed upsetting hosts Germany.

The event which takes place over the December weekend of the 3rd and 4th in Dusseldorf will be Button’s fourth appearance at the event.

‘I’m really looking forward to coming back to the Race of Champions again in December, It’s a great way to round off the season and it’s always fun to meet up with old friends from all the different forms of motorsport. Apart from last year when I had a clash of commitments, I’ve turned into something of an ROC regular.’ Button told formula1.com.

Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel who look likely to have nine F1 titles between them by the time of the event will be representing Team Germany.

Button added: ‘It?s a lot of fun and everyone wants to put on a good show for the fans. In the ROC Nations Cup Team Germany had an annoying habit of beating us at Wembley so it’s probably about time someone managed to pay them back on their home ground…’
