Just a day after scooping two prizes at the prestigious Autosport Awards, Formula One world champion Jenson Button picked up some more silverware at the British Racing Drivers’ Club (BRDC) annual end-of-season event in London on Monday night.

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown was in attendance at the ceremony and paid tribute to Button, as he presented the 29 year-old with the Richard Seaman Trophy.

“Jenson, we are so proud of everything that you have achieved,” said Brown. “We have a world champion in whom we have so much pride, who fought back against all the odds, who achieved something when some people thought at the beginning of the season it was impossible. Jenson, the whole country is proud of you. You are a brilliant ambassador for British sport, and I thank you for what you are doing."

Button collected a further three awards at the event including the BRDC Gold Star.
