Jenson Button's website hacked

By on

Jenson Button's official website was hacked earlier today. A malicious user had broken into the content management system of the site and posted an article saying Button had suffered a major accident. Fortunately, Jenson is safe and well.

The website has published a correction message: "Earlier on today some of you may have seen a news article here on regarding a car accident. This article was completely false and we are currently investigating how an unauthorised person was able to post to the site."

"Suffice to say Jenson is safe, well and tucked up in bed looking forward to tomorrow's race, starting from 3rd on the grid."

"We can only apologise for any alarm this may have caused."
