BAR Honda driver Jenson Button has come under fire for dismissing the chances of women ever being successful in Formula One - because of their 'mood swings and big breasts'.

Button was speaking during an interview with men's magazine FHM, in which he downplayed the chances of female IRL star Danica Patrick (pictured with Button) - who finished fourth in this year's Indianapolis 500 - reaching Formula One.

"Danica is very quick. But in F1 cars I can't see it happening due to the G-force in fast corners," began Jenson, after which his reasoning became more questionable:

"And one week of the month you wouldn't want to be on the circuit with them, would you? A girl with big boobs would never be comfortable in the car. And the mechanics wouldn't concentrate. Can you imagine strapping her in?"
