Jenson Alexander Lyons Button (born 19 January 1980 in Fromemarker, Somersetmarker) is an English Formula One driver currently signed for Vodafone McLarenmarker Mercedes, and is the reigning Formula One World Drivers' Champion.

He first drove in Formula One in the 2000 season, with the Williams team, switching in to Benetton, which in became Renault F1marker. After two years with the Enstone-based squad, he moved to BAR in 2003. They were subsequently renamed Honda for the 2006 season, during which Button won his first Grand Prix in Hungary, on 6 August 2006, after 113 races.

Following the withdrawal of Honda from the sport in December 2008, he was left without a drive for the 2009 season, until Ross Brawn led a management buyout of the team in February 2009, and Button suddenly found himself in a highly competitive, Mercedes-engined car. He went on to win six of the first seven races of the 2009 season, equalling a record achieved by only two other drivers: Michael Schumacher and Jim Clark. At the Brazilian Grand Prix, he amassed enough points over his rivals to secure the 2009 World Drivers' Championship, while also helping Brawn GPmarker to secure the World Constructors' Championship in its maiden season.

Early life

Button was educated at Selwood Middle School and then Frome Community Collegemarker. He is the son of Simone Lyons and former Rallycross driver John Button from London (during the 1970s well-known in the UK for his so-called Colorado beetle Volkswagen, whose best overall results were to become the runner-up in both the Embassy/RAC-MSA British Rallycross and TEAC/Lyddenmarker Rallycross championships of the year 1976). Button's parents are divorced, and he has three older sisters.

Racing career

Button began karting at the age of eight, after his father bought him his first kart, and made an extraordinarily successful start. He won all 34 races of the 1991 British Cadet Kart Championship, along with the title. Further successes followed, including three triumphs in the British Open Kart Championship. In 1997, he became the youngest driver ever to win the European Super A Championship, and won the Ayrton Senna Memorial Cup as well, precipitating a move into car racing.

Aged 18, Button contested the British Formula Ford Championship with Haywood Racing and won the title, with nine race wins. He also triumphed in the Formula Ford Festival at Brands Hatchmarker, ahead of future Indianapolis 500marker winner Dan Wheldon. At the end of 1998, he won the annual McLaren Autosport BRDC Young Driver Award. His prize included a test in a McLarenmarker Formula One car, which he received at the end of the following year. He was shown around a Formula One pit lane by a reporter and met Ross Brawn who, after speaking to Jenson said "I hope to see you again" to which Jenson replied, "You will see me again".

Button entered Formula Three in 1999, with the Promatecme team. He won three times - at Thruxtonmarker, Pembreymarker and Silverstonemarker - and finished the season as top rookie driver. He was third overall in the championship, behind Marc Hynes and Luciano Burti, and finished fifth and second respectively in the Marlboro Masters and Macau Grand Prix (0.035s behind winner Darren Manning in the latter).

Formula One

2000: Williams

At the end of 1999, Button had his McLaren test prize at Silverstonemarker, and also tested for the Prost team. A vacant race seat became available at the Williams team, following the departure of Alex Zanardi, and team boss Frank Williams arranged a 'shoot-out' between Button and Formula 3000 racer Bruno Junqueira. Button won the seat.

At the first race in Australia he could have scored a point on his debut but retired due to engine failure. His best qualifying of the season occurred at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, he qualified 3rd and finished 5th. He made few mistakes during the season, the only notable one being at Monzamarker. Under safety car conditions he swerved to avoid the pack which had bunched up and subsequently crashed into the barrier. He finished eighth in the 2000 Drivers' Championship and was outscored by his more experienced teammate, Ralf Schumacher, who scored 24 points to Button's 12.

2001: Benetton

In , although still under contract with Williams, Button drove for Benetton, which had just been purchased by Renaultmarker. He had a dismal season; despite promises that the car would be competitive, the car, which was constantly under development that year, was never competitive, while Button was generally out-qualified by his team-mate Giancarlo Fisichella. His best result of the season was finishing fifth at the German Grand Prix, with him ultimately finishing a disappointing seventeenth in the Drivers' Championship. Unable to match his team-mate, he was dubbed a "playboy".

2002: Renault

In , Renault renamed Benetton as Renault F1marker. Though his teammate, Jarno Trulli, routinely outpaced him in qualifying, Button usually had the superior race pace. He narrowly missed third place (and his first podium) at the Malaysian Grand Prixmarker, being passed by Michael Schumacher in the last lap due to a suspension failure in his Renault, and ultimately finished the race in fourth. The Brazilian Grand Prix gave him another fourth place, and he finished seventh in that year's Drivers' Championship, comfortably ahead of his team mate.

For the 2003 season, Renault team principal Flavio Briatore replaced Button with Fernando Alonso, previously test driver for the team. Despite a "huge outcry", Briatore stated "time will tell if I am wrong." In 2005, Alonso won the Drivers' Championship with Renault, while Button had yet to win a race and was involved in his second contract dispute in two years. The Times quoted Briatore as saying "Jenson is a fine driver, but there were too many contracts, too many things in the background."

2003–2005: BAR

After his replacement at Renault, in early 2003 Button joined the BAR team, alongside former World Champion Jacques Villeneuve. As the season progressed, Button gained the upper hand in qualifying and also enjoyed better races. Button's best result of the season was fourth place in Austria. However, he crashed heavily during Saturday practice in Monaco, causing him to miss both the race and the following testing session at Monza. By the end of the season, though, things were looking up, and at the United States Grand Prix, Button led a lap for the first time. He finished ninth in the Drivers' Championship that year, with 17 points.
In , Button and BAR-Honda made significant progress, and BAR finished second in the Constructors' Championship. Button scored his first ever podium finish with a third place in the Malaysian Grand Prix, and added 9 more throughout that season. Button and BAR's first pole position came in April at the 2004 San Marino Grand Prix, in which he finished second. He ended the season third overall, a then career-best, and only behind the two dominant Ferrari drivers, with 85 points.

Despite his success with BAR, on 5 August 2004 Button revealed that he had signed for Williams for the next two years, sparking a controversial contract dispute. BAR boss David Richards fought to keep his driver, though Frank Williams maintained that the switch was entirely legal. The FIA Contract Recognition Board (CRB) held a hearing on 16 October in Milan, Italymarker, to determine Button's 2005 status, concluding that he was contracted to BAR-Honda for the 2005 season.



A poor start to the 2005 season included disqualification at the San Marino Grand Prix. Scrutineers found that the fuel system of the car 'hid' fuel, allowing the car to finish above minimum weight despite potentially being able to run lighter during the race. The adjudged contravention of the rules resulted in a two-race ban for the team, allowing him to make his television commentary debut, for ITV Sport in Monaco. Button took the second pole position of his career at Montreal. However, he started the race poorly, and crashed on lap 46, while in third place. Despite having to wait until the halfway point of the season to score his first World Championship point, things improved considerably towards the end of the year. After a fourth place finish at the 2005 French Grand Prix, Button placed himself second on the grid for his home grand prix at Silverstone. Unfortunately, another slow start saw him lose position, and poor race pace dropped him through the field to finish fifth. Button has always performed well at the Hockenheimmarker circuit, and 2005 was no exception. He qualified his BAR-Honda in second place for the German Grand Prix, and then went on to finish third, his first podium finish of the season.

In 2005, Button again found himself the subject of contractual controversy. On 21 September 2005, BAR confirmed that Button would once again drive for them in 2006 (having bought out his contract from Williams for a reported $30m,) where he would partner ex-Ferrari driver Rubens Barrichello.

2006–2008: Honda

At the start of the 2006 season, BAR Honda was fully purchased by Honda, and became a full-works team, changing its name to the Honda Racing F1 Team. The season had highs and lows - Button had a dismal race at home, but took his first ever Grand Prix win in Hungary.

The early part of the season proved difficult; at the first round, he scored five points with 4th place, and finished on the podium in Malaysia. In Australia, he qualified on pole, but was overtaken on the run to the first corner by Alonso and Räikkönen after a safety car period; he was running 5th in the race, before his engine blew at the last corner on the last lap. He stopped short of the finish line to avoid an engine penalty. At his home race at Silverstone, he qualified 19th after he lost time being weighed, and his team failed to get him on track quickly enough. He spun off on lap eight due to an engine oil leak.

At the Canadian Grand Prix, Button out-qualified his teammate for the first time since Imola, but finished ninth, just outside the points. He retired at the United States Grand Prix, in a first lap collision involving several drivers and again at the French Grand Prix due to an engine failure. At the German Grand Prix, Button was again pulled into the weighbridge, but went on to qualify fourth. After running third for a while in the race, Button eventually finished fourth.

Button took the first win of his career in 2006 at a chaotic Hungarian Grand Prix - the 113th Grand Prix start of his career. He started 14th after a 10-grid slot penalty for changing his engine. The race was badly affected by heavy rain. Button passed a number of drivers in the early laps - including championship contender Michael Schumacher - and was up to fourth by lap 10. Following the retirement of leading drivers Kimi Räikkönen and Fernando Alonso, he went on to win the race by over 40 seconds from Pedro de la Rosa and Nick Heidfeld. Alonso was behind Button on the racetrack when he retired, although Button still had one pitstop to make. Button's win beats Nigel Mansell's 1989 win from 12th on the grid at the Hungaroring. Button was the first British driver to win since David Coulthard in March 2003, and the first English driver to win since Johnny Herbert won the 1999 European Grand Prix. He was the second driver after Räikkönen to win a race despite a grid penalty for changing an engine. At the British Academy Television Awards 2007, Button's first win at the 2006 Hungarian Grand Prix earned ITV1 a BAFTA under the category of 'Best Sport'.

Button finished fourth or fifth at each of the next four races and finished the season with a podium finish at the final round in Brazil. Over the last six races of the season, Button scored more points (35) than any other driver.

In 2007, Button again competed with the Honda Racing F1 team alongside Rubens Barrichello. He was unable to take part in winter testing, prior to the 2007 season because of two hairline fractures to his ribs, sustained in a karting incident in late 2006. Former British world champion Damon Hill aired doubts over Button's hopes to be a championship contender at Honda over the coming season, saying, "if he is serious... he has to get himself in a car that is a championship contender." Alan Henry writing in The Guardian 2007 F1 season guide, predicted: "Button will win a couple more races but is not a title contender." He was proved to be wrong, as the Honda RA107 proved to be aerodynamically poor.

At the first race of the season in 2007 Australian Grand Prix, Button only managed to qualify 14th after handling problems. The race was no better, as he endured considerable understeer throughout, was given a drive-through penalty for speeding in the pit lane and finished 15th. The next two races in Malaysia and Bahrain were just as unsuccessful, Button finishing 12th behind team-mate Rubens Barrichello in Malaysia, and not even completing a lap in Bahrain, after colliding with Red Bull Racing driver David Coulthard at the first corner. At the French Grand Prix, Button finished eighth, earning his and Honda's first point of 2007. Following the British Grand Prix, it was announced that Button would remain with Honda for .



As Button's place as the pre-eminent British driver in Formula 1 was effectively taken by Lewis Hamilton, former champion Nigel Mansell criticised Button, saying: "Jenson should have won more races, he has under-performed and that is down to him." Honda team boss Nick Fry defended his driver, saying: "I would refute everything Nigel has said, and particularly I think his comments about Jenson’s reputation for partying are about five years out of date...his increasing maturity and the way he changed his lifestyle is extremely noticeable." Button made no secret of his frustration regarding his current situation; he described his 2007 season as "a total disaster".. Button did, however, record several impressive outings towards the end of the season, especially when rain was prominent.

Jenson Button stayed with Honda for , and continued to be partnered by Rubens Barrichello. The Honda RA108 proved to be uncompetitive, and he scored his only points at the Spanish Grand Prixmarker with 6th place, but did not finish in the wet in front of his home crowd at the British Grand Prix, where his team-mate finished on the podium. On 5 December 2008, Honda announced that they were quitting Formula 1, due to the global economic crisis. This left Button's chances of a drive in the 2009 season dependent on the team finding a buyer.

2009: Brawn GP



On 5 March 2009, it was announced that the former Honda team would become Brawn GPmarker, following a buy-out by Ross Brawn, the previous team principal of Honda Racing. Button and Rubens Barrichello were confirmed as the team's drivers for .

Button took pole position at the Australian Grand Prix, his first for the team and fourth ever, with his team mate Barrichello in second place. Button led the race from start to finish to win the race ahead of his team-mate, the first time a team had scored a 1-2 finish on their debut since 1954.

One week later, he secured two poles and two wins in a row, at the Malaysian Grand Prix, setting the fastest lap in order to jump ahead of Jarno Trulli and Nico Rosberg during the first pit stops. The race was stopped due to heavy rain and, with less than 75% of the race completed, only half points were awarded. In this race Button scored his first hat trick (pole, win and fastest lap) and his first fastest lap.

At the Chinese Grand Prix, Button finished third behind Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber. Button won the fourth race of the season, the Bahrain Grand Prix, from fourth on the grid, finishing ahead of Vettel and Trulli, who had set pole position; this was the first time he had taken the chequered flag at racing speed for the season.

After the first improvements of 2009, at Barcelonamarker, Button took pole again after complaining of balance problems for the Spanish Grand Prix. He went on to win his fourth race of the season, after his team-mate stayed on a three-stop strategy, leading him to drop back behind Button.



At the Monaco Grand Prix, Button got his fourth pole position of the season, and his first at the Principalitymarker, after a last gasp lap, which was also his fastest in the entire qualifying session. He had been complaining of balance issues for the whole weekend, and set his fastest lap of his weekend as his pole time. He was also the heaviest car out of the top eight apart from Barrichello, in a similar situation to Australia. He went on to take the win from his teammate to take his first hat trick of wins, and lead Brawn's third 1-2. Button made a good start to the race and built a lead during the first stint by handling the soft tyres better than Barrichello.

At the Turkish Grand Prix, Button qualified in second place behind Vettel, but in front of team-mate Barrichello. After being somewhat uncompetitive during Friday's practice sessions, he came alive in qualifying and even more so for the race. During the first lap, Button took the lead after Vettel ran wide, allowing the Briton through. Vettel, by virtue of a light fuel load after his first stop, was able to close right up on Button, but was ultimately unable to overtake. Button's two-stop worked perfectly, leaving Vettel's three-stop strategy uncompetitive. Button won his sixth race of the season, ahead of Webber and Vettel, with Barrichello giving Brawn their first retirement of the season.

At the British Grand Prix, Button failed to give home fans the win they might have expected, with a dismal weekend. He was outperformed by his team-mate, starting in sixth, but ultimately leaving Copse in ninth. He managed to get up to sixth, and was gaining on the slowing Felipe Massa and Nico Rosberg in the closing stages. He managed to close the gap to under two-tenths, with only five seconds between him and third-placed team-mate Rubens Barrichello.

Button finished fifth at the German Grand Prix, won by Mark Webber, which reduced his points lead to 21 ahead of Sebastien Vettel.


Brawn predicted a strong result for the Hungarian Grand Prix, as the Brawn car had been heavily updated and is usually at its best in hot conditions. However, in the second part of qualifying, Barrichello experienced a suspension failure (causing a huge accident for Felipe Massa), leaving the team to spend much of Q3 checking Button's car. He only had time for one qualifying run, lying a season-worst 8th on the grid, subsequently finishing seventh in the race.

After the World Council meeting, which confirmed the cost cutting plan for 2010, Button was one of the first to offer support of the cost cutting for the 2010 season.

Button suffered in qualifying at the Belgian Grand Prix, failing to reach the third round (Q3). On the first lap in the race, Grosjean bumped into Button, sending him into a spin. In the chaos, Hamilton and Alguersuari were trying to avoid the incident but they bumped into each other. Grosjean then hit Button again. All four cars retired on the spot; it was Button's first retirement of the season, and it shortened his championship lead to 16 points, with Barrichello coming seventh.

Button recovered at Monza; he qualified sixth, behind Barrichello, before finished second, behind his team-mate, giving Brawn another one-two.

In Singapore, Button qualified 12th, but was promoted to 11th on the grid when Nick Heidfeld was sent to the back for running an underweight car in qualifying. Barrichello began the race in ninth place, having suffered a five-place penalty. Button opted to run the car very heavy on fuel, and spent much of the race closely behind his team-mate and Heikki Kovalainen, before a series of very quick laps before his second stop enabled him to leapfrog both cars. Going into his final stint, Button initially appeared to have the pace to challenge Vettel for fourth place, but heavily worn brakes caused him to back off and protect his fifth position. Barrichello's sixth place meant that Button was able to extend his championship lead to 15 points, with three races to go.

A week later, in Japan, he qualified seventh, but along with his team-mate was demoted five places, for failing to slow for a yellow flag; he started the race from 10th position, subsequently finishing in eighth, one place behind his team-mate.

At the Brazilian Grand Prix, Button was hampered by poor weather in qualifying and could only achieve fourteenth position. His championship campaign was boosted by Vettel qualifying sixteenth, but team-mate and closest rival Barrichello qualified on pole. In the race, Button made up five positions on the opening lap, aided by a first-lap incident, and was up to seventh by lap seven. He ran as high as second place by the halfway mark, but ultimately finished fifth, taking enough points to secure the 2009 World Championship with one round to spare.

At the final race of the season, in Abu Dhabi, Button qualified fifth, behind his team-mate once again, but during the race, aided by the retirement of Lewis Hamilton, Button was able to achieve a podium by coming third.

With 169 starts, Button made the second-highest number of race starts before becoming World Champion. Only Nigel Mansell (with 176 starts, at the 1992 Hungarian Grand Prix) had competed in more races than Button before winning the World Championship.

Button wrote a book about his 2009 season, entitled "My Championship Year", which was published by Weidenfeld & Nicolson on 19 November 2009.

On 30 November 2009, Button was announced as one of the ten men and women shortlisted for the 2009 BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award, which will be decided by public vote and awarded on 13 December 2009.

2010: McLaren

Following the buy-out of Brawn by Mercedes, Button announced on 18 November that he would be leaving the team to move to multiple-championship winning team McLarenmarker for the 2010 season. He signed a three-year deal for a reported $6 million per season to drive alongside former world champion Lewis Hamilton. Button told the BBC he moved to McLaren because he was looking for a new challenge, insisting Brawn were offering more money but that he wanted the motivation and challenge from competing head-to-head with Hamilton.
