For current world champion Jenson Button, it was meant to be the dream move, transferring to another very competitive and prestigious team with a new challenge awaiting.

For Jenson, retaining his WDC title with McLaren Mercedes and beating teammate and rival Lewis Hamilton was something he aspired to achieve in the 2010 Formula One season.

And despite a less than inspiring performance at the Sahkir Circuit in Bahrain, Jenson Button's goal is still achievable.

Because contrary to popular belief, a more important Button than Jenson has been the victim of a horrific injury.

The F1 button on someone's computer keyboard was dislodged from its position earlier this month, and since then it just hasn't been the same.

In a tribute group to this demoralising incident on the social networking website Facebook, one commenter wrote, "I knew F1 could be dangerous but hadn't realised that just using a qwerty keyboard can be life-threatening; hats off to those guys, real men, all of them."

So there you have it.
