Jenson Button swapped the cockpit of his F1 car for a swim, bike ride and a run, smashing his personal best in the process.

As well as being a F1 Champions Button is an avid ?Ironman? competitor, with a previous best for the Half Ironman (which is made up of a 1.9km swim, 90km bike and then ends with a 21.1km run) being 4 hours 29 minutes in California earlier this year.

In a Berlin competition Button shaved 10 minutes of his best to post a 4 hour 19 minute time.

Button will be hoping some of this increased speed can be taken into his McLaren car for the British Grand Prix, however it’s unlikely that he’ll be as successful at Silverstone as he was in Germany in the Ironman!
