London, May 12 (ANI): Jenson Button recalls the time when he had to jog 300 metres, up to the Prince of Monaco to receive his Monaco F1 trophy.

After describing the winning of the Grand Prix as his most embarrassing moment, he doesn't mind reliving it.

"It's going to stay in my mind forever, running up to Prince Albert of Monaco and saying, 'I'm sorry I parked in the wrong place'," The Sun quoted the F1 champ as saying.

Describing how the Monaco win had a special place in his heart, Button said, "As he handed me the trophy and I lifted it above my head, it really dawned on me what I had achieved.To hammer a car around that Monaco circuit, in between those walls, the armco barriers - it's like driving a go-kart round your living room!

"Every lap gets more and more difficult because the barriers seem to get closer and closer. Mentally it is so, so draining.

"It's such a special race. I think every driver will agree with me that it's the first race you would love to win in a Formula One car," he said nostalgically. (ANI)
