McLaren driver Jenson Button has been taken to hospital after suffering an eye problem during Friday practice for the German GP.

`Jenson complained of an eye irritation during FP2, and has gone to Mannheim hospital to have a precautionary check-up,` McLaren confirmed.

Were Button to be ruled out, McLaren reserve driver Stoffel Vandoorne, already in attendance at Hockenheim, would deputise for the former world champion.

Button finished the afternoon session in eighth place, two places ahead of team-mate Fernando Alonso, but missed the final twenty minutes as a result of his eye complaint.
