Jenson Button

A Jenson Button gallery

The latest driver for whom I have created a gallery of photos is McLaren driver Jenson Button.  Williams introduced Jenson to Formula One in 2000, and the following year, he moved to the Benetton team, which was renamed Renault the next year. 2003 saw a move to the BAR team, which became Honda in 2007. At the end of 2008, it looked like Jenson’s Formula One career may be in trouble when Honda announced that they were leaving the sport.  However, things took a very different turn when team principal Ross Brawn took over the team, and Jenson raced in the low budget Brawn team in 2009.  To everyone’s surprise, Jenson managed not just pole but the race win in both Australia and  the shortened and rain soaked Malaysia Grand Prix, the first two races of the season.  Vettel took pole and won in China, then Jenson won in Bahrain, Spain, Monaco and Turkey.  It was looking like Brawn’s season.  However, the other teams were catching up, most notably the Red Bull of Sebastian Vettel.


The second half of the season saw Vettel get closer and closer to Jenson in the championship, but some good results including a second place in Italy behind team mate Rubens Barrichello and a third in the final race of the season, Abu Dhabi, behind Vettel and Mark Webber, saw Jenson win by eleven points.  After waiting for years for a British world champion to come along, there were two in two years.


The following year, Brawn became Mercedes, and Jenson moved to McLaren, where he remained until he left the sport at the end of 2016.

There is a list of my various galleries of Formula One drivers here.
