Known by the entire F1 paddock from her days in the Brawn GP garage last season, Michibata returned to the “scene of the crime” for this weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix, enlightening Button's face instantly.
“It's amazing, amazing. How can it not be? Look at her,” said Button when asked by the reporters how he feels with his girlfriend back in the paddock, according to planetf1.com.
“She arrived from Japan yesterday. She's only here for the weekend and then she has to go back. But I'll see her again in August for our summer break which will be nice, but it's great having her back here. It really is. Life has its positives and negatives for all of us, but I'm happy now.”
Button continued by admitting it was a mistake letting his girl go – back then, his spokesman told the media that Jenson wants to focus entirely on his F1 career – and said he'll now have an extra reason to feel comfortable during racing weekends.
“She just makes me happier. You have bad days and good days, but on the bad days she puts a smile on your face - and I don't mean in a weird way - but she's just a lovely person. But we're not going to have any bad days. We've agreed we're going to have a really good weekend this weekend.”
“I'm very lucky with my family, my old man and Jessica that I don't have to worry about them over the weekend. They do their own thing, they're out of the way and they never bother me, which is quite nice. They know when to speak and when not to,” concluded Button.
