Jenson and Jessica tri to impress
While most of us use time away from work to relax, Jenson Button prefers to indulge in extreme fitness events.
Last weekend he competed in a triathlon in Australia, along with girlfriend Jessica Michibata. Button completed the course in 61 minutes, while Michibata, who was raising money for a United Nations refugee charity in her native Japan, finished her first such event in an impressive 86 minutes.
"Some people use Formula 1's winter season as a time to wind down, but I love to compete," Button admitted. "It's fantastic to be able to stay competitive while also working on my fitness by taking part in the Rockingham Triathlon."
