2009 may have been a tough year for most but if anyone can look back and feel pleased with themselves it is F1 champion Jenson Button. Giving us a lesson in style of how determination does pay - let us watch and learn, n'est-ce pas Gordon?
Oh how excited must have Gordon Brown felt to finally get a chance to put his party tie on! It's been a bleak year for those in charge of governing a credit-crunched nation but fortunately the splendid success of some can help forget the hardship of many. This season's Formula One champion was honoured last night at the Autosport Awards with a double victory as best International and British driver of the year. "A brilliant ambassador to British sport" as Gordon pointed out... and a brilliant excuse to let one's hair down before Copenhagen!
