Button was in Budapest for the weekend to race at the Hungarian Grand Prix, and as usual at F1 events, he was out in town giving signatures before the race. Instead of the usual magazine clipping, Lili arrived with a race carrot she’d drawn, driven by a serious-looking race bunny. Bridging the gap between her height and Button’s lanky frame proved to be quite a challenge, as she recounts in her mischievous blogpost:
i had a close look at the car that i took a couple of pictures of and that he probably is not driving this weekend on the hungaroring where the real battle will take place and unfortunately i won't be there but surely watch the race on the telly with dad. frankly speaking i'm right now a
lewis hamilton fan but he was not around yesterday but he is more handsome than jenson i guess though jenson looked okey too and he was stubbly like dad. the car itself looks bigger than i thought and i secretly touched the front left tire and the nose of the car and i could give it a little push too although it was strictly forbidden and when jenson came in for the signing that took something like 5 minutes the crowd went berserk and i wasn't afraid but too little to be noticed and people were falling and all of them were like jenson please please jenson but didn't say a word only showed this drawing and my arms were not long enough to reach the pilot and than dad took my drawing and he was bigger than the crowd and then the pilot finally could see the carrot car and he was as pleased as can be and gave his last autograph to me
Totally awesome and unbearably cute. By the way, did you know that the phrase “race carrot or race car” is a genuine palindrome?
