Yet another prize for Jenson Button

Posted on Author Keith Collantine

The awards and accolades continue to pile up for Jenson Button.

Now the world champion has been awarded a Gold Badge by BBC childrens’ programme Blue Peter.

New team mate Lewis Hamilton already has a Gold Badge which he won last year – in addition to his three regular badges.

Button is also expected to get a mention in the New Year Honours List along with former boss Ross Brawn. Button will again match Hamilton by receiving an MBE.

Among the other prizes Button has won since claiming the world championship are four BRDC Awards including their Gold Star and Autosport’s International Racing Driver of the Year and British Competition Driver of the Year.

How many more gongs will Button collect before the 2010 F1 season begins? Are there any others that I’ve missed? Leave a comment below.
