BILLY MONGER: JENSON BUTTON DONATES £15,000

In response to a fundraising appeal made on behalf of Billy Monger, the 17-year old British teenager who was involved in a horrific crash on Sunday, Jenson Button has donated the sum of £15,000.


The horrendous car crash which occurred during a British Formula Four race at Donington Park saw Monger plough his car into a stationary car at 120mph caused the teenager to lose both legs.

Medics who were in charge of him could n0t save his legs and were forced to carry out amputations to his lower legs.

The footage of the car crash was filmed by the on-board camera of Billy’s car and streamed out live on ITV4. For over 90 minutes after the crash, Monger remained trapped in his vehicle before he was finally airlifted to Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham.

On Wednesday afternoon, a fundraising page for the teenager was established and six hours later, the £260,000 was reached with support from the defending F1 champion Nico Rosberg, Button and Britain’s triple world champion, Lewis Hamilton.

Twenty two hours and 30 minutes later after the first donation was made, the £500,000 mark was reached. (more…)

BUTTON: BEATING MERCEDES IN 2017 IS A BIG ASK

The McLaren driver has expressed his opinion that defeating the Mercedes steam in the new season will not be an easy task.


He believes that Mercedes will maintain their position as the formula 1 favorite in 2017 and it will take an extraordinary amount of effort for rival to beats them.

Button believes that the new formulations being introduced into the formula 1 might even go a long way to play to the team’s strength and consolidate their superiority even more. He believes that the extra drag created by the high down force F1 regulations newly introduced for the 2017 season will probably favor the Mercedes teams.

He made the statement at the race of champions being held in Miami where he was set to compete against other Formula 1 stars both past and present from, David Coulthard, Pascal Wehrlein, Felipe Massa, and Vettel Sebastian.

“For anyone to catch Mercedes is a big ask, it really is, they’ve been so strong the last three years. Nobody knows with completely different regulations” he said. (more…)

I CAN WALK AWAY FROM F1 – BUTTON

Jenson Button, World Champion in 2009, believes he can leave the F1 at the moment without harboring any regrets, despite not having had his fill of the sport yet.


Button is not ruling out the possibility of a grid comeback, even though he had treated Sunday’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix as the 305th and last start of his 17-season career.

The 36 year old Frome born racer had said during the preview day in a Driver Press conference at Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi,

“I’ve done everything I dreamed of doing. Maybe I could have won more championships, but I won one and not every driver can say that.

“I go into this weekend thinking it is going to be my last race. That is the best way to be at this moment of time.

“But the whole idea about having a contract for 2018 is that in three months’ time, when I have eaten myself stupid and am thinking of things to do in the future, maybe I realise I need F1 back in my life.” (more…)
