Button is BBC Newcomer of the Year
Button is hoping that the new Renault V10 engine will be sufficiently competitive to enable him to keep up the momentum in his career. The Benetton technical package should be better this year as Mike Gascoyne is now technical director and working with the ex-Honda Research and Development engineers who joined the team last winter. They had all previously worked together at Tyrrell.
