Button recovering from wasp sting 16 June, 2014 Jenson Button Jenson Button is currently recovering from a wasp sting, which forced the McLaren driver to pull out of appearing in person on a BBC chat show last Friday after suffering an allergic reaction. “I’ve been taken out by a wasp!” the 34-year-old said on Twitter. “I was riding my bike yesterday and got stung between the eyes.” Button said the sting made him feel “rough, plus I look like an Avatar but obviously not the blue bit!” Chat show host Graham Norton, sitting with actors Samuel L Jackson and Keira Knightley, phoned Button during the show and asked the Formula 1 driver if he will be well enough to race in Austria this weekend. “I hope so,” Button answered. “That is the crazy thing. I drive around at 220 miles per hour and I get taken out by a wasp.” Pulp Fiction star Jackson, however, said that he is not convinced and told Button, “I want to see the face. I am not buying it.” (GMM) Tweet Related NewsButton unperturbed by Alonso reportsMcLaren tempt Alonso with $32 million dealDennis: McLaren always look to employ the best driversButton: I can’t imagine life without Formula 1Button calls for cleaner F1 title battle fightMcLaren will decide on drivers before season endBoullier: We may need to refresh our driver lineupBoullier: We see this year’s McLaren as a rolling laboratorySilly Season Latest: Bottas to McLarenMcLaren luring Alonso or pissing off Ferrari?
