For some, holidays are about shifting down a gear. Not so for Formula One ace Jenson Button.
The racing driver was clearly in search of adrenaline thrills on a summer break in St Tropez, bombing along at top speed on a jet ski across the azure waters.
But it wasn't all turbo-charged activity on the sunshine break. Jenson spent some time chilling with his model girlfriend Jessica Michibata on the deck of a luxury yacht.
The couple's relationship is going strong after six months. The 29-year-old racing champ started dating Jessica - a lingerie model of Japanese and Argentine parentage - in February, when they enjoyed a string of romantic dinners in London.
St Tropez is just a short trip away from Jenson's Monaco home. He's currently making the most of a gap between races - and isn't due to hit the track until the weekend after next.
Then 24-year-old Jessica will be cheering on her man at the European Grand Prix in Valencia. He'll no doubt hoping to hold onto his shrinking lead in the world championship.
