Jenson Button is one of the greatest racing drivers of his generation. His seventeen years in Formula 1 have seen him experience everything the sport has to offer, from nursing underpowered cars around the track to winning World Championships and everything in between.
Here, in his autobiography (October 2017), Jenson tells his full story for the first time in his own honest, intelligent and eloquent style. From growing up as part of a motor-racing-mad family under the guidance of his father John, to arriving at Williams as a fresh-faced 20 year-old, to being written off by some as a playboy and his fight back to the very pinnacle of his sport. Jenson’s World Championship victory for the unsponsored and unfancied Brawn GP team is one of the most extraordinary against-the-odds sports stories of the century.
Jenson says: “This certainly feels like the right time for me to be releasing this book. After not only 17 years in F1 but 28 years of racing from the age of eight, I’ve both seen and experienced so much and this book is a chance to share as much of that as possible with the incredible fans who were there throughout. My dream was always to race in F1 and then once there the focus of course was always to win a World Championship. The journey to achieving that goal was far from straightforward but it was also far from dull! I dedicated 17 years and my entire adult life to F1 and I went on that journey with family, friends and teams that ensured every day was special and this book is a celebration and insight into that and all we achieved together.”
