Oh Button where art thou?
Sunday, June 11th, 2006
The curse of the Formula One commentator strikes again – the British Grand Prix is running at the moment and Jenson Button, the Tim Henman of F1, was steaming his way up through the field following a poor qualifying performance.
One of the commentators announced “Jenson's on fire here” as he cruised up to the back of David Coulthard and began to look for a way past. Wise to the ways of F1, Beloved Other Half and I looked at each other and said “he shouldn't have said that…”
No more than three laps later a great gout of flame blew out of the back of Button's Honda and that was the end of his race.
