There was an armed attempt on Jenson Button's car on the way back from the circuit on Saturday. None of the occupants were hurt and the police driver of Button's car managed to get them out of trouble and back to their hotel.

It is a relief to hear that all involved are fine.

The following press release was issued by the McLaren team:

Incident involving Jenson Button in Sao Paulo

On Saturday evening (November 6) on the way back from the Interlagos circuit to Morumbi (Sao Paulo), armed would-be assailants made an attempt to approach the car that was carrying Jenson Button.

Neither Jenson nor the other occupants of the car were hurt. (The other occupants were John Button [Jenson’s father], Mike Collier [Jenson’s physio] and Richard Goddard [Jenson’s manager].)

Vodafone McLaren Mercedes had provided both Jenson and team-mate Lewis Hamilton with reinforced armoured vehicles driven by police drivers, who had been trained in avoidance techniques and were armed.

The police driver of Jenson’s vehicle reacted swiftly and, using avoidance techniques, rapidly forced his way through the traffic, taking Jenson and the other occupants of the car immediately away from any danger and back to their hotel.

The Sao Paulo authorities have also acted efficiently and will be providing additional security to transfer Jenson and other senior Vodafone McLaren Mercedes personnel to the Interlagos circuit for Sunday's Brazilian Grand Prix.

Glad to hear Button was ok.

Backed Vettel. He was fastest throughout, comfortably.

I thought Button had a very good race as well.
