Jenson Button - Too lucky to escape a serious injuryJenson accidently hit a drain cover that was dislodged by Rosberg’s car, at the end of the first practice for the Monaco Grand Prix.

He got saved even after roughly damaging his front wing, when his car hit the drain cover at the exit of Ste. Devote, at the end of the session.

It appeared that Nico Rosberg had already pulled the cover up while running over it, which resulted in the puncture of the left rear wheel of his Mercedes.

It was not confirmed during the incident what Button had hit, until the photos of the broken cover emerged.

Jenson Button - lucky to escape a serious injuryTrack officials were gathered to weld the cover back down again, before the start of a slightly delayed GP2 practice session.

F1 race director, Charlie Whiting also reached the scene, soon after the session.
