He was educated at Vallis First School, Selwood Middle School and Frome Community College. After his parents divorced when he was seven, he and his three elder sisters were brought up by their mother in Frome. Further successes followed, including three triumphs in the British Open Kart Championship. 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. Button’s best qualification of the season was third place in the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps; and his best result was fourth in the German Grand Prix. Under safety car conditions Button swerved to avoid the pack which had bunched up, and subsequently crashed into the barrier; he blamed Michael Schumacher who had been leading at the time (and so controlling the pace), and Schumacher apologised for it after the race.

Jenson Alexander Lyons Button MBE (but-?n; born 19 January 1980) is a British Formula One driver currently signed to McLaren. 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 failed his first driving test for getting too close to a parked vehicle. Button began karting at the age of eight, after his father bought him his first kart, and made an extraordinarily successful start. He won three times –at Thruxton, Pembrey and Silverstone–and finished the season as the top rookie driver, and third overall. 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”. However some had misgivings about his lack of experience and ability to cope with the pressures of Formula One.
