Overview

AUTHOR OF SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER, LIFE TO THE LIMIT

In his 17 years as a Formula 1 driver, Jenson Button has picked up a thing or two about how to do the job properly. Sure, you need to be able to drive a car fast - and Jenson is on hand to pass on a few tricks of the trade here - but you also need to know the real rules for making it to the top.

Like, how to tell a multiple F1 champion they need to check their blind-spot. What the difference is between a helmet and a hat, and indeed a 'helmet-hat'. How to practise your champagne spray ahead of the big day. Why it is never, ever, under any circumstances a good idea to buy a yacht. And how to face down your team when you've just stacked their multi-million-pound car into a wall during practice.

But 'JB' (nicknames in F1 run the full range from initials to, well, just using first names) doesn't stop there. HTBAF1D (catchy) lifts the lid on the people, the places, the weird rituals, the motorhomes, the media, the cars, the perks and the disasters. Join Jenson as he reveals how not to race a stupid big truck, why driving Le Mans is like having five shots of tequila before lunch, and what to do when you finally hang up your helmet-hat.

About the Author

JENSON BUTTON is one of the greatest racing drivers of his generation. Since retiring from Formula 1 he's mostly been racing big trucks, winning Super GT championships, not winning Le Mans and taking driving lessons from a lovely man who insists on calling him Mr Bur-ton. He has also got engaged and become a dad, which means it really is time to start taking life seriously. Mostly.
Born in Frome, Somerset, British Racing driver Jenson Button has been in Formula 1 for seventeen years, appearing in 308 grand prix, the second most in history. He won the 2009 Formula One World Championship, driving for Brawn GP. Outside of racing, he set up the Jenson Button Trust for his fundraising activities which includes the Jenson Button Triathlon which has raised money for Help For Heroes, Cancer Research and now Barnardo's.
