In an interview to Daily Mail website, the British F1 ace recalled the incident: "I was once in the lounge at Heathrow waiting to fly, and someone mistook me for Chris Martin from Coldplay.

"An American family came up and told me they'd been big fans for years, so I signed a few autographs for them before they then told me they had all my albums!

When I told them who I really was, they said they were still big fans... although I actually don't think they knew who I was!"

Button, who currently races for McLaren, won the F1 world championship in 2009 with Brawn GP.
