Jenson is not in an official McLaren machine when he is off the track? No sir, not this year!
World champion with the number 22 for Brawn GP — as the hat I wore (still wear…) very often to this day, Jenson has signed up with another hometown hero from England: Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
When not in the track at the Grand Prix du Canada in Montreal, Jenson will move about town in a 2014 Rolls-Royce Ghost and Rolls-Royce Wraith.
He is especially excited to get behind the wheel of Wraith — the most youthful and sporting Roller in ages.
Will it feel slow next to his F1 car? Perhaps.
But will he be loads more comfortable, and able to set a sexy mood for his gal pal with the fiber-optic ceiling?
Yes, and yes.
Don’t miss the Canadian GP this Sunday — and be rooting for Jenson Button in McLaren number 22!
So, what would Jenson’s ideal Wraith look like? We have a few ideas for the champ below that might match his MP-29.
Anthracite over Gunmetal or Anthracite over Black Sapphire, Sir?
DEFINITELY Not the Wraith Denali! =]
Or Carrara White?
Or perhaps the Rolls-Royce Alpine Trial-liveried Ghost is more fun for summer?
