'He'll propose' - Jenson's girl has ideas on marking win

Tuesday October 20, 2009

As if becoming Formula One world champion wasn't enough, Jenson Button may soon have even more reason to celebrate.

The British race ace previously suggested he might announce his engagement to Japanese lingerie model Jessica Michibata "towards the end of the year".

And his girlfriend seems to have the same idea.

"If Jenson wins the title, we will celebrate and it will be by him getting down on one knee," she told the Daily Telegraph before his win.

While his associates said this week the champ had no immediate plans to pop the question, that won't bother the 24-year-old.

Jessica has her own means of keeping Jenson on his toes.

The model - who was absent for her boyfriend's astonishing result at the weekend - is yet to see him for celebrations.

"I've been telling her 'Come on honey, you can get off work, I want to see you now'," says Jenson. 

"But she can't - she's working. I'll see her Friday and I can't wait."

The couple are meeting up for a sunny break in Dubai, before Jenson returns to the driver's seat for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on November 1.
