Jenson Button hits Bathurst

Video: Jenson’s lap around the famous Australian circuit, via the front of his McLaren…

Last week, a man who is quite good at driving brought his company car down to the Mount Panorama track in Bathurst, Australia for a leisurely afternoon drive.

That man is Jenson Button, and his company car is the McLaren MP4-26, complete with KERS and a whole dollop of meaty power.

Bathurst is normally V8 supercar territory, but ol' Jense decided to nail it in his boring, slow and excessively engineered work econo-box. Just for posterity, they stuck a camera in the nose. Click the vid below for a bit of high-revving kerb-kissing goodness...

Now share it...
