What is it with people trying to rob Jenson Button? Remember a few years ago in Brazil when armed men tried to jump Jense during the grand prix weekend and Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone suggested it was probably just people trying to get an autograph?
Now it seems that poor Jense has actually been burgled, how I love that word, while on vacation in France. It seems Jenson and wife, Jessica Michibata were gassed via their air conditioning system and jewelry was stolen.
Reports suggest that valuables worth £300,000 were stolen and a Button spokesman said:
“Two men broke into the property whilst they all slept and stole a number of items of jewellery including, most upsettingly, Jessica’s engagement ring.
“The police have indicated that this has become a growing problem in the region with perpetrators going so far as to gas their proposed victims through the air conditioning units before breaking in.”
What the? Let’s everyone just leave Jenson alone for a change. Pick on someone who might cut you with a shiv or broken glass like Adrian Sutil or try it on Pastor Maldonado who looks angry to begin with. Or Lewis Hamilton who has the heart of a lion. Poor Jenson? What did he do to deserve this?
What an odd turn of events indeed. Jessica’s wedding ring was stolen! If I were Jense, I’d pull a Caterham and crowdfund for a replacement ring…why not? Everyone’s doing it.
