Silverstone: Jenson Button`s British Grand Prix jinx continued on Sunday when the McLaren driver retired from his home race after a pitstop blunder while chasing fourth place.
The 2009 world champion was cleared to leave the pitlane before the right front wheelnut had been secured.
With the wheel wobbling, Button pulled over at the pitlane exit and parked up.
Button has never stood on the Formula One podium at Silverstone in 12 attempts. His best previous result there was fourth place last year and in 2004.
The Briton had been second in the championship before Sunday`s race, 77 points behind Red Bull`s Sebastian Vettel.
