F1 drivers campaigned to have a huge billboard depicting an attractive woman removed prior to Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix.

The advertisement for Martini stood right in the drivers' line of sight as they accelerated out of the Loews hairpin and turned right.

Race winner Jenson Button admitted to Bild newspaper: "Every time you passed her, it was as though she was looking right at you."

The model, 29-year-old Jessiqa Pace, was in Monaco, laughing at the story but admitting she would have felt "terrible if someone got hurt".
