He first drove in Formula One with the Williams team for the 2000 season. in his first six races, he outqualified his teammate Ralf Schumacher twice, and was consistently close in pace; journalist David Tremayne described Button’s start as “the stuff of any team owner’s wildest dreams”. A dip in Button’s form, combined with Montoya’s victory in that year’s Indianapolis 500, led to Montoya being announced as his replacement midway through the season.

Jenson Alexander Lyons Button MBE (BUT-?n; born 19 January 1980) is a British Formula One driver currently signed to McLaren. He was the 2009 World Drivers’ Champion. 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. Button was born on 19 January 1980 in Frome, Somerset and brought up in nearby Vobster. He was named after his father’s friend Erling Jensen, changing the “e” to an “o” to differentiate it from Jensen Motors.
