I found the article

MONTE CARLO, Monaco (AP) -- One of Jenson Button's Formula One bosses finds his ticket for speeding somewhat impressive.
The 20-year-old English driver was caught speeding at 141 mph near the southern French city of Montpellier last week.
French police took him to the nearest cash machine so he could pay the fine of $750.
"He did an unbelievable speed in a diesel," BMW director of motor sport Gerhard Berger said Thursday. "We should pay his fine. It must be the fastest diesel in the world."
Button, driving a BMW 330, was on his way from a test track near Nougaro to Monaco, where the next Formula One race will be run Sunday.


Maybe you read about another incident. Wouldn't that be funny getting caught twice in different diesel cars, both times braking the electronically limited speed? What the hell is Jenson trying to do?
