Ross Brawn has been presented with the Motorsport Industry Association's award for the Most Outstanding Contribution to the Motorsport Industry.
The award was presented to Brawn last night by Lord Drayson, Minister of State for Innovation at the MIA's annual Summer Reception at the House of Lords.
"His exceptional race engineering talent is coupled with integrity, sincerity and humility - a rare combination in this aggressive competitive sport," said the MIA's CEO, Chris Aylett.
"His personal contribution has benefited many in this global industry - employees, suppliers and drivers. His influence makes motorsport and F1 a better place to be.
"Ross is a great inspiration to young engineers who we need to help us improve our future. As patron of Formula Student for example he is putting something back into tomorrow's generation. F1 leaders can be great ambassadors for global motorsport - Ross is one of the new breed who will ensure its popularity will last well into the future."
Brawn joins an impressive list of previous winners, including Frank Williams, Stirling Moss and Jackie Stewart.
