Top 5 Jenson Button Moments
5. 2012 Brazilian Grand Prix
The last race Button won was the 2012 Brazilian Grand Prix. Even though the headlines were captured by Sebastian Vettel after winning the championship, it was Button who came out on top at the end of the race which had the most overtakes in the history of Formula 1. A rain affected race meant chaos for many, but Jenson’s calm drive without any incident earned him a well-deserved win.
Luck did play a part in Jenson’s victory but his great skill in driving on a wet track meant that he was on the right tyre at the right time and always close to the top spot. All in all, a great drive.
