Competing for almost all Formula One major teams in a total of 234 races, Jenson Button comes with a lot of driving experience and he was recently invited at a safety campaign event to put his talent at work in an old-school Lada.
The Vodafone sponsored safety campaign was held near Budapest at the Driving Camp Hungary complex, where Jenson was invited to show people some driving techniques on different road conditions.

Button tackled the course in all sorts of cars, including the Mercedes-Benz CLA and the SL63 AMG, but the icing on the cake was a Russian Lada 1500 from the ‘70s. The point was to show people that not only the car that you are driving matters, as your skills and awareness behind the wheel will totally come in hand, even when you don’t have ABS, ESP, EBD, EDE, ABC, ACE and all other kinds of fancy electronic assist systems.

See how the Lada showdown went, with Jenson Button competing against the show host on the challenging course in the video bellow.
