After an excellent career in Formula One, Jenson Button enjoys a lavish lifestyle.
Despite hanging up his F1 helmet, Jenson Button owns property, magnificent sportscars, and enjoys a variety of amazing employment. According to Celebrity Net Worth, despite quitting Formula One over six years ago, Button is worth an astounding £123m ($150m). Express Sport provides a behind-the-scenes look at the F1 world champion of 2009.
Despite his origins in Somerset, Button currently resides in the United States. The former champion recently purchased a £4.8m ($5.8m) home in Santa Monica, California, according to reports.
It comes after the couple listed their £8m Los Angeles house after just one year on the market last year. Button is also selling his four-bedroom home in Palm Springs, California, which is listed for £2m ($2.5m).
Brittny Ward, Button’s wife, stated, “With my design career and Jenson’s demanding work schedule, in addition to our family responsibilities, we do not have the time to manage two properties in Palm Springs. But, we are confident that whoever is fortunate enough to get the property will be quite pleased there.”
According to GQ, Button’s collection of automobiles ranges from new supercars to classics. The former Formula One world champion is ruмored to own a McLaren P1 and a stᴜnning £2m Lotus Evija hypercar.
The magazine also states that Button has a Jaguar C-Type from the 1950s, a Pontiac Trans-Am from 1978, and a series of antique Ferrari models, including his childhood favorite, the F40. Button also retains a Brawn GP 001 chassis from the season he won the world championship.
Last year, Button married former Playboy model Brittny Ward in a breathtaking ceremony in California. The wedding was originally slated for 2019, but was postponed since Ward became pregnant.
TV host Ant Anstead and his Hollywood girlfriend Renée Zellweger were in attendance at the glitzy party. Button and Ward have two sons, Hendrix and Lenny, who are frequently pictured on the former McLaren driver’s social media profiles.
Since then, Ward has begun a profession in interior design and architecture, with Button sharing a heartfelt remark on her new chapter a year ago. “Very proud of my wife @brittnybutton, her architecture and interior design career is still in its infancy, but you wouldn’t know it by the caliber of her work,” he said. Very stᴜnning design, and like she says, it’s all in the details!”
Despite leaving the cockpit in 2016, Button remains strongly involved in Formula 1. Early in 2021, he signed a multi-year contract to rejoin his former team Williams Racing as Senior Adviser.
His responsibilities include working with the team’s racing and academy drivers, in addition to ambassadorial duties. Button has also been a prominent member of the Sky Sports F1 presenting crew on race weekends.
In 2023, Button will return to international motorsport at the renowned Le Mans 24 Hours. As part of an experiment, he will pilot a NASCAR car over the historic French endurance circuit with Michael Rockenfeller and Jimmie Johnson.
He said: “In June, I will be able to bring NASCAR on the world stage alongside my friends Jimmie and ‘Rocky’ for the 100th anniversary of the most renowned race. Several of my dreams will come true at once.
“I can’t wait to share this experience with NASCAR, Hendrick Motorsports, Chevrolet, and Goodyear, as well as existing and prospective NASCAR fans around the globe.”
In 2020, Button competed in the British GT competition, and in 2021, he appeared at the Goodwood Revival. Several times, the British superstar has hinted at a return to the driver’s seat in various roles.
Button, together with Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg, participates in the fully-electric off-road series Extreme E. The JBXE team made its début at the 2021 season opener, with Button at the wheel.
He left the cockpit with Kevin Hansen and Hedda Hoss during the previous season. Together with Wheeler Dealers host Ant Anstead, Button is also a founder of classic automobile business Radford.
The company concentrates on coachbuilding to provide customers with the opportunity to drive some of the most desirable models available.
