Button has a big one

Jenson Button had a big accident on Saturday morning at Monaco, the car going sideways into the barriers at high speed at the chicane. The shunt was reminiscent of Karl Wendlinger's accident in 1994 but the barriers are much better now and Button was moving in the car immediately after the crash, looking around and talking to Professor Sid Watkins. Button was taken out of the car by rescue teams and taken to the medical centre but there is no indication as to any injuries at the moment.
