Magic Moment – Jenson Button’s first win (Hungary 2006)
For more than 10 years now, G.H.MUMM has been the champagne befitting any celebration, taking centre stage during the magic moment that caps a superlative victory ceremony. G.H.MUMM, the official Formula 1 Champagne.
The podium at 2006 Hungarian Formula 1 Grand Prix was full of firsts.
After going 113 races without a win, Englishman Jenson Button finally got to taste the Champagne on the top step of the podium. In tricky wet conditions and despite lining up way back in 14th on the grid, Button sliced through the field to take a memorable and popular win in his Honda.
It was also the first and only podium for Spainard Pedro de la Rosa, who had slotted into the vacant second seat at McLaren following the departure of Juan Pablo Montoya to NASCAR.
German Nick Heidfeld was also in the party mood, after scoring BMW Sauber’s first ever podium with a fighting 3rd place.
