Jenson Button says he is feeling no pressure going into his one-off return to Formula 1 at Monaco this weekend.

The 2009 world champion is substituting at McLaren for Fernando Alonso, who is racing in the Indianapolis 500.

Button said: "I am very relaxed. Very excited, actually. It is interesting coming back for one grand prix.

"It being Monaco is very special. I have won here. I lived here for 17 years. It is exciting but I don't feel any pressure."

McLaren have not scored any points this year and are last in the constructors' championship. Monaco represents their best chance of points so far.

Alonso put the car seventh on the grid in Barcelona two weeks ago, and the car should be even better suited to Monaco, where the lack of power from the Honda engine is less important in the overall performance of the car than at any other track this year.

"Everything in life is the same," Briton Button said. "You want to get the best out of yourself and the equipment and team you're working with.

"The car seemed to be working well in Barcelona. Fernando did a good job. It proves the car is good. I drove the car in the simulator, I drove the upgrade and if it all goes well we should be reasonably competitive."
