Button says goodbye at father's funeral
Jenson Button has said goodbye to his father John at a funeral in Monaco.
The McLaren driver was famously close to his dad, who died of a suspected heart attack at the age of 70 just over a week ago.
Britain's Daily Mail newspaper photographed Button, 34, talking at the picturesque Saint Devote church with his first F1 boss, Sir Frank Williams. Monaco's Prince Albert also attended the funeral.
"He was such a big part of my life, I'm going to miss him so, so much," Briton Button told his almost 1.7 million Twitter followers last week.
"I love you Papa Smurf, you'll forever be in my heart."
