Button began karting at the age of eight and achieved early success, before progressing to car racing in the British Formula Ford Championship and the British Formula Three Championship. The following year he switched to Benetton, which in 2002 became Renault F1, and then for the 2003 season he moved to BAR. 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 was educated at Vallis First School, Selwood Middle School and Frome Community College. He is the fourth child of South African-born Simone Lyons and former Rallycross driver John Button, who was well known in the UK during the 1970s for his so-called Colorado Beetle Volkswagen.

He went on to win a record-equalling six of the first seven races of the 2009 season, and secured the 2009 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. He was educated at Vallis First School, Selwood Middle School and Frome Community College. Aged 18, Button moved into car racing, winning the British Formula Ford Championship with Haywood Racing; he also triumphed in the Formula Ford Festival at Brands Hatch.

Button began karting at the age of eight and achieved early success, before progressing to car racing in the British Formula Ford Championship and the British Formula Three Championship. The following year he switched to Benetton, which in 2002 became Renault F1, and then for the 2003 season he moved to BAR. Aged 18, Button moved into car racing, winning the British Formula Ford Championship with Haywood Racing; he also triumphed in the Formula Ford Festival at Brands Hatch. He won three times –at Thruxton, Pembrey and Silverstone–and finished the season as the top rookie driver, and third overall. However, he performed strongly in the race and was set to score a point before his engine failed 11 laps from the finish. 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. For 2001, Button partnered experienced driver Giancarlo Fisichella at Benetton, which had recently been purchased by Renault. His poor form led to speculation he would be replaced before the end of the year; team principal Flavio Briatore said, “Either he shows he’s super-good or he leaves the top echelon of drivers”, and reportedly offered him the chance to walk.
