Button and Brawn honoured by Queen - An MBE and OBE are on offer for the Brawn boys

Published by Christine

The Brawn boys have another celebration to get around to, after both Jenson Button and Ross Brawn were named in the Queen's New Year's Honours List. Button has been granted an MBE, whilst Brawn picks up an OBE for his services to sport.

Button is proud to be on a list of Britain's great motor-racing legends, and whilst looking forward to his new challenge in 2010, hasn't forgotten what this season was all about:

We literally started with nothing, but had the belief, determination and passion to take on the world and succeed. Many people played a role in my world championship - and in receiving this award, I want to acknowledge and thank them for all their efforts.

Last year, Hamilton picked up an MBE which he collected in March, so we'll look forward to some more pictures of Jenson and Ross in suits in the next few months.
