Button: Do it like I did

Monaco: Formula One world champion Jenson Button has some simple advice for whoever wins this weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix — park your car in the wrong place and get running.

The McLaren driver did just that last year when he triumphed with Brawn GP, jogging jubilantly back down the pit straight to the podium with the occasional leap in the air in front of a throng of cheering fans.

“I would recommend it to whoever wins this year,” he stated sitting alongside teammate Lewis Hamilton.

“If I win, I’m going to do it again,” smiled the Briton, whose steering wheel will have the numbers ‘09’ picked out in diamonds individually crafted by team sponsor Steinmetz. Hamilton, the 2008 champion, will have ‘08’ on his.

“I’m going to stop halfway around the in-lap, jump in a few boats, get some drinks.”
