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 named after his father’s friend Erling Jensen, changing the “e” to an “o” to differentiate it from Jensen Motors. 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.

Button entered the British Formula Three Championship in 1999, with the Promatecme team.
