One-time Formula 1 champion Jenson Button will soon be transported in luxury to this season’s races with Rolls-Royce’s recent announcement that the British driver will steer the marque’s range of vehicles during the 2014 F1 season.
"I am absolutely delighted to be accompanied by the very best in British luxury as I travel the world this year," said Button. "I especially look forward to driving the Wraith, a fantastic addition to the Rolls-Royce fleet and quite simply a stunning car to look at and drive."
According to the British luxury carmaker, Button has already selected a number of its models--including the Wraith, the Phantom Drophead Coupe and the Ghost--to transport him in style for 10 of this year's grands prix.
"We feel privileged to provide a British icon with the consummate British car as he travels the world during the 2014 Formula 1 season," said Rolls-Royce global communications director Richard Carter. "Jenson Button's commitment to success echoes Rolls-Royce’s constant pursuit of perfection. We look forward to following his achievements, and wish him the very best of luck."
Take that, Mercedes-Benz!
