Jenson Button has talked of his chance with Brawn GP as being a fresh start. Having come so close to seeing his F1 career finish over the winter, the trials of Brawn GP's survival over the winter have acted as a wake-up call for him to prove to the world he has the same hunger and promise that he showed when he first entered F1.

With the Brawn GP car having gone so well in pre-season testing, Button has every chance of getting himself back to the front of the field in 2009 - and getting back some of the British attention that Lewis Hamilton has dominated for the past two years.
