This is the moment a stern-looking Jenson Button was stopped in his tracks – by an angry traffic cop.
Onlookers said the British Formula One champion was pulled over as he drove through the streets of Monaco in his super-fast C-Class Mercedes.
The McLaren driver didn’t look impressed as the officer parked up his bike and strolled around the DR520 Estate taking notes near Monaco’s Casino Square.
The stony-faced policeman is thought to have spoken to Button, who was photographed glaring through the window of his £60,000 car today (Tues).
One onlooker said: “I think he was pulled over for speeding because the policeman had a notepad out and was taking notes.
“He didn’t look too pleased. I think he had a quiet word with him.”
It is not known if Button was given a ticket for speeding but you could hardly blame him if he was – the sports car takes just 4.2 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 62mph.
Engineers at Mercedes fitted the super-estate with a 6.2-litre V8 engine which develops a staggering 520bhp.
This gives the limited edition car an electronically limited top speed of 187mph.
