Jenson Button splits with Jessica Michibata

Formula One driver Jenson Button has broken up with his model girlfriend, Jessica Michibata. Button dated the lingerie model for around 18 months but decided to call time on the relationship just after the Monaco Grand Prix due to problems in maintaining a long distance relationship.

“Jenson is single again. He and Jessica have gone their separate ways,” thesun.co.uk quoted his spokesperson as saying. A friend said: “Jenson had a great time with Jessica and it looked like things were moving in the right direction. But the logistics took their toll.”

“With her living in Tokyo and him all around the world to races it has been very tough. She was constantly flying out to meet him. And whenever there was a race in her part of the world, he would fit a visit to Tokyo into his schedule. But it’s impossible to maintain that in the long term.”

“Just over a week ago Jenson reluctantly decided that racing must be his main priority. He was forced to make the unpleasant decision to split to focus on his racing. There is no one else involved,” the friend said.

When I read the above, I am wondering if a contributing factor to the rise in divorce rates in Singapore is due to the fact that more Singaporeans are working overseas. Anyway, as the Chinese Saying goes, “A man should place his career as top priority”. All the best to Jenson’s racing career!

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

The factor thing on divorce rates the author has mentioned has nothing to do with ppl working away from home. The drivers in the F1 motor sport has a short career span much like soccer. Now that button is in his peak of his career and in his prime, he will have to make a decision on what he wants to focus on and commit to it. It's a tough decision. I'm sure he wants the best of both worlds but it seems like things dun workout the way he wanted.

its rubbish. Schumacher got married and had kids when he was at the peak of his career. Jensen just wants to keep partying and of course racing.
