There will be a competition on the day for a selected number of people to meet Jenson Button for a quick meet and great photo opportunity. The winners will be selected at random.
Why is it best to practice your champagne celebration ahead of the big day? How do you tell a multiple F1 champion they need to check their blind-spot? And how do you face down your boss when you've just stacked his multi-million pound car into a wall during practice? In his brilliantly-written and revealing new book, expert driver Jenson Button takes the reader behind the wheel, telling us all about what it is like to be a champion F1 driver. From the couch to the podium, the pit-lane to the racetrack, Jenson reveals what really goes on behind-the-scenes. The people, the places, the weird rituals, the motorhomes, the media, the cars, the perks and the disasters, this is the perfect book for any petrol-head, and what all F1 fans have been waiting for.
Born in Frome, Somerset, British Racing driver Jenson Button has been in Formula 1 for seventeen years, appearing in 309 grands prix, the second most in history. He won the 2009 Formula One World Championship, driving for Brawn GP. Outside of racing, he set up the Jenson Button Trust for his fundraising activities which includes the Jenson Button Triathlon which has raised money for Help For Heroes, Cancer Research and now Barnardo's.
