Jenson Button to speed through Budapest downtown


As a unique celebration of its mobile network renewal, Vodafone brings Formula 1 world champion Jenson Button to set a new speed record in downtown Budapest, together with a four-day festival encouraging the audience to “start something new.”

Horse power is to rule the streets of Budapest downtown in the long weekend between April 28 and May 1, 2012, dubbed by Vodafone as Start Something New Weekend. Attendants of the event will have the opportunity to see Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team member and world champion Jenson Button trying to set a new downtown speed record, when racing through the fresh asphalt of Bajcsy-Zsilinyszky út three times in a row, possibly reaching a 200 km/h final speed.


At the highlight of the event series, the Vodafone Downtown Grand Prix, other stars of the car sports (rally, WTCC, Lotus Lady) will also demonstrate their skills on the road from the Basilica to the Parliament. The organizers expect tens of thousands of attendants to the four-day event. AJM
