Jenson Button got into the Guinness Book of Records, where from now on his achievement will be officially recorded: the 2009 world champion has now become the champion in reaction speed.
Using the BATAK simulator to practice and test the reaction speed, Jenson beat Arsha Shahrani's previous achievement, set four years ago, by extinguishing 58 lights in 30 seconds. The Iranian repaid 56 at the time.
Such simulators are constantly used by drivers, including Jenson, considering them an important training tool, and even in the boxes of many Formula 1 teams on Grand Prix days, such a car also usually exists.
For his achievement, Button received an official certificate of the Book of Records, after which he commented:
Jenson Button: "Actually, in 2003, my best result was 56 strokes in 30 seconds, but then he didn't get into the Record Books. And then I was in my twenties, so when I was offered to try to break that record, I said: "Well, I can try, but it will be quite difficult, because I am already 43 years old."
And yet I did it, so I'm very happy, because when you manage to win a race in Formula 1 or set a world record on the BATAK simulator, it's great! So you were able to surpass everyone else.
The adrenaline is going through the roof, and when I broke the record, everyone celebrated it noisily. Usually in a Formula 1 car you don't hear the grandstands greeting you, so it was great!"
