He is the 2009 World Drivers’ Champion for Brawn GP. After finishing fifth for the team in 2010, Button finished the 2011 season as runner-up. He was educated at Vallis First School, Selwood Middle School and Frome Community College. He is the fourth child of South African-born Simone Lyons and former Rallycross driver John Button, who was well known in the UK during the 1970s for his so-called Colorado Beetle Volkswagen. in 1989, aged nine, he came first in the British Super Prix. At the end of 1999, Button had his McLaren test prize at Silverstone, and also tested for the Prost team. Button was heavily hyped before his first race: former driver Gerhard Berger described him as a “phenomenon”; the head of his karting team, Paul Lemmens, compared him to Ayrton Senna; and Williams’ technical director Patrick Head said he was “remarkably mature and definitely a star of the future”. A dip in Button’s form, combined with Montoya’s victory in that year’s Indianapolis 500, led to Montoya being announced as his replacement midway through the season.

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. After his parents divorced when he was seven, he and his three elder sisters were brought up by their mother in Frome. Aged 18, Button moved into car racing, winning the British Formula Ford Championship with Haywood Racing; he also triumphed in the Formula Ford Festival at Brands Hatch. 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’ test between Button and Formula 3000 racer Bruno Junqueira, with Button securing the drive. in his first six races, he outqualified his teammate Ralf Schumacher twice, and was consistently close in pace; journalist David Tremayne described Button’s start as “the stuff of any team owner’s wildest dreams”. Williams chose not to sell Button’s contract, keeping the right to recall him in 2003. He went to Benetton on a two-year loan.
