Watch: Lunatic Jenson Button Causes Crash On Return To Formula 1

Jenson Button has had a bit of a nightmare upon his return to Formula 1.

He was racing in today's Monaco Grand Prix as a replacement for Fernando Alonso, who is off racing in the Indy 500.

Button's dream return has curdled very quickly, however. Yesterday, after an admirable qualifying performance which left him twelfth on the starting grid, he was hit with a 15-grid penalty over engine issues, leaving him at the back of the grid this afternoon.

Things were to get worse.

On lap 62 of 78, Button caught Pascal Wehrlein around a corner, up ending his car and ending the race for both men. Both were thankfully unhurt.

You can watch the Button crash below.

Ahead of the race, Alonso radioed in to wish Button good fortune. The Englishman sounded delighted, before adding that he would "pee in your seat".
