Jenson Button lost his cool on the grid of the Spanish GP today, after being asked the same questions for the 300th time.
“For f*cks sake, David! I’ll drive as fast as I can until the tyres wear out, then I’ll come in for a new set”.
“After that I’ll go back out and do the same thing all over again.”
“If I’m faster than the guy in front, I’ll try to overtake. If I’m slower than the guy behind, I’ll try to stop him getting past.That’s what I do for a living. Same as you used to, you muppet.”
The famously laid-back Button then yelled at Coulthard to “piss off and do something interesting, like mowing the grass” before telling the Scot that, if he’d saved some the millions of dollars he’d earned as an F1 driver, he wouldn’t have to demean himself like this every grand prix weekend.
