PROFILE
Jenson Button

If a world championship wasn't enough, Jenson Button proved his worth as a leading Formula One driver by establishing himself at McLaren. Expected to be out-performed by Lewis Hamilton at the British team, Button ensured that he played his role in a characteristic cool and collected manner to score more points than his teammate in the three years they spent together. With Hamilton switching to Mercedes, the onus was left on Button to lead McLaren, just as he did in his championship winning year at Brawn in 2009. But before he achieved that, he spent his time in F1 as just another mid-field driver, unable to showcase his talents in mostly uncompetitive cars. Nevertheless, he pounced on every opportunity that was thrown at him, which included his season at BAR in 2004 and his first F1 win - after he contested in more than 100 Grands Prix - in 2006 in a Honda. He may lack the sheer speed Hamilton possesses - Button clinched only one pole position in his stint with McLaren - but his race craft has been his crowning glory. And this was highlighted by his epic win from the back of the field in Canada 2011. Now at the fag end of his career, he might just have one last hurrah in himself and not for the first time, trump the odds to do something special. Not much could be expected of him, but his experienced hands could maybe steer his team to a bit of unlikely glory.
