Jenson Button: ‘I’m probably more nervous in a triathlon than an F1 race’ (video)

Britain’s Jenson Button has revealed that he still finds jumping into a lake or the sea with a bunch of other triathletes “pretty daunting”, despite being an experienced racer.


Speaking ahead of this year’s Jenson Button Trust Triathlon in Derby this July (see video below), the McClaren Honda driver said: “Before an F1 race I don’t get nervous, it is excitement and adrenaline. I pretty much know what to expect, I have done over 250 races now so I have raced in a lot of F1 races now so I am very at home.
