Jenson Button ‘ran round naked in Ugg boots’ in his days of hard partying
Jenson Button has dished out the dirt on his former playboy lifestyle, saying he 'ran round naked in Ugg boots' after a big race.
The Formula One champion talked about his days of hard partying and opened up about the events that occurred after Silverstone Grand Prix.
The 39-year-old confessed he partied for five days non-stop after the huge race, and one of the nights led to the dad-of-one stripping off stark naked wearing only Ugg boots.
Jenson told The Sun on Sunday : "I remember after a Silverstone Grand Prix I partied for five days non-stop, out every night.
"One of those nights consisted of me leaving the property where I was staying wearing only Ugg boots and running around the block."
He admitted that the drinking began after races, but he was a highly committed and industrious playboy.
Jenson confessed other party animals were German serial Grand Prix winner Michael Schumacher and scotsman David Coulthard.
Button was one of the youngest-ever F1 drivers back at the time of his debut, when he was 20.
The star retired in 2016 after competing in 306 races and now drives in the Japanese Super GT series.
In his new book How To Be An F1 Driver, Button reveals how he swapped the "sticky floors" of Somerset nightclubs for glitzy Monaco.
Formula One stars would party in places such as Amber Lounge, famous for its mix of royalty, celebrities and F1 legends.
He explained how his status got him a lavish club opened especially for the F1 crew, and moments before, he sat at a bar on the beach downing bottles of rose until there was a whole crew of people.
But Jenson revealed he got flack from his boss Flavio Briatore, who called him a "lazy playboy" following the F1 racer's wild partying.
Luckily though, the racing legend didn't have to stop partying completely. He said: "It just gave my work-social life the same thing I look for in cars – balance."
