Jenson Button's Biography

Renowned for his smooth driving style and strategic brilliance, Jenson Button was the 2009 FIA Formula 1 World Champion. His remarkable 18-year career saw him win 15 Grands Prix, but his legacy extends far beyond the track. Button started karting under the guidance of his father, John Button, but his rapid ascent in motorsport beautifully showcased his relentless drive and adaptability.

Button's Formula 1 journey began with the Williams team in 2000, where he quickly became the sport’s youngest ever point scorer. He then moved to Benetton, which later became Renault, securing 14 top-six finishes in his early years. Joining BAR-Honda in 2003, Button finished 3rd in the 2004 World Championship and claimed his first race win at the 2006 Hungarian Grand Prix. His career pinnacle came with the Brawn GP team in 2009, where he clinched the World Championship in a season marked by six wins in the first seven races. Jenson Button then joined McLaren, adding eight more Grand Prix victories to his name and finishing runner-up in the 2011 World Championship.

After retiring from Formula 1 in 2016, Button joined Williams F1 as a Senior Adviser and Sky Sports as a presenter that underscores his enduring influence in the sport. He is also a passionate advocate for mental health, environmental sustainability, and philanthropy. Jenson Button's openness about his struggles with depression, detailed in his autobiography Life to the Limit, has sparked essential conversations in the motorsport community. His support for F1's environmental initiatives and his own venture, Coachbuilt Whisky, further highlights his commitment to sustainability and innovation.

As a keynote speaker, Button offers deep insights into the economics and engineering innovations that define modern motorsport. He is often invited to talk about overcoming adversity, the importance of mental health, and the future of sustainable technology. His foundation, The Jenson Button Trust, also reflects Button's dedication to charitable causes.
