BAR was subsequently renamed Honda for the 2006 season, during which Button won his first Grand Prix in Hungary, after 113 races.
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 went on to win a record-tying six of the first seven races of the 2009 season, securing the World Drivers' Championship at the Brazilian Grand Prix, having led on points all season; his success also helped Brawn GP to secure the World Constructors' Championship.
2008 - Present Jenson Button started dating lingerie model Jessica Michibata in 2008, but the couple split briefly in May 2010 because the distance was getting to them.
Not long after, they were spotted together again looking lovey-dovey in St.
The following year he switched to Benetton, which in 2002 became Renault, and then for the 2003 season he moved to BAR.
In 2004 he finished 3rd in the World Drivers' Championship, with only the two Ferraris ahead of him.
