James Thompson has been drafted in as Jenson Button's replacement at Team England for this weekend's Race of Champions in Paris.

SEAT World Touring Car star Thompson, 32, replaces Button after the Honda Formula One driver was told to rest for an extra week after breaking a rib recently in a go-kart accident.

Thompson will partner Andy Priaulx in the 'Nations Cup' section of the event, even though, and will be the only true Englishman in the squad as Priaulx is actually from Guernsey in the channel Islands.

Follow live streaming of the Race of Champions on eurosport.com from 16:00 CET (15:00 UK time) on Saturday.
