Button and Brawn celebrate (Pictures)

Those eyes have a familiar look...

Those eyes have a familiar look...

When Jenson Button broke his Grand Prix victory duck at the Hungaroring three years ago one picture captured the moment: the wide-eyed stare beaming out out from inside his crash helmet.

That famous photo had aits sequel yesterday as Button climbed from the cockpit of his BGP001 and tried to come to terms with the fact that he’d just won the world championship. Here’s some more pictures of the celebrations that followed for him and new constructors’ champions Brawn.

    Great pix. Makes you proud to be British.

  2. Great pictures, thanks. Jenson and the team really deserve this. WORLD CHAMPION BABY!!!

  3. I noticed that “Great Button” / Union Jack flag during the telecast. Do they make those things, or did that one guy in the stands give it to Button?

    utter legend Ross Brawn a man who broke down in tears with pure happiness, possibly the best ending to a Formula 1 season IMO. should make a movie of this season even though it didnt end with a 1 point gap.

    Congratulations to Jenson Button you prooved me wrong i never thought you would be a world champion “ever” and you shut up a load of haters good for you. Hopefully you will defend your title better then lewis did this year and show your good enough to compete with the best.

    Enjoy Abu Dhabi and I cant wait to see you race for real again on March 14th at Bahrain with the Number “1” on your car.

    “Proud to be british” and thats a world first for me.
