Brundle? Blundell? No, Brudenell!

Brundle? Blundell? No, Brudenell!

It was always going to a problem for commentators and fans alike, having two British drivers racing at the same time with very similar surnames. Of course, I’m talking about Martin Brundle and Mark Blundell. Often, one would get confused with the other, or worse still one would be referred to as Brundell, or Blundle. However, while both drivers have retired and decided to give ITV credit programmers a headache instead, a new (perhaps better looking) version of the name has appeared, and this time it is attached to Jenson Button’s arm.

Jenson strolled into the Malaysian paddock with a new girlfriend supporting him from the pitwall. To give the young 21 year old her full name, Florence Brudenell-Bruce, and Florence is apparently still studying at university. The pair recently visited St. Tropez for a quick getaway in the sun and found their photos in the like-named tabloid.
