Button confirms ASI presence

Formula 1 world championship leader Jenson Button is set to star at the 2010 AUTOSPORT International Show at Birmingham's NEC

Button confirms ASI presence

The Brawn GP driver, who has so far won six grands prix this season, will appear live on the AUTOSPORT and F1 Racing stages on Saturday January 16 and Sunday January 17, on what will be the show's 20th anniversary.

Fans will even be given the opportunity to ask Button questions during a live Q&A session on the AUTOSPORT stage, where the British driver will also be available for autographs at points during the two days.

"I'm really looking forward to visiting the AUTOSPORT International Show in January," said Button. "It's a real highlight of the motorsport calendar and there's always a fantastic atmosphere with a great mix of people and some very impressive machinery.

"Along with the British Grand Prix and Goodwood Festival of Speed, it's one of the best opportunities to meet our fans and thank them for all their support.

"Hope to see you all there!"

Button has been a fixture at ASI before during his F1 career. In 2008 he drew huge crowds as he looked ahead to what would become Honda's final season in the sport.

In 2005, in a unique exclusive for AUTOSPORT and ASI, the BAR-Honda team unveiled its 007 challenger live from Barcelona, with footage beamed straight on to the giant screen above the main stage.

AUTOSPORT International has become an essential starting point to the motorsport calendar over the past two decades.

As well as the AUTOSPORT stage, which features interviews with a host of motorsport celebrities, there is also The F1 Racing Grid, where paddock pass holders can meet their heroes and get autographs, the fantastic Live Action Arena and the Caterham Drive Experience.

Tickets are already on sale for the 2010 show. For more information visit www.autosport-show.com.

The one-time Schumacher rival rebooting his career Down Under

Joey Mawson made waves in the middle of the last decade, beating future Haas Formula 1 driver Mick Schumacher - among other highly-rated talents - to the 2016 German F4 title. A run in F1's feeder GP3 category only caused his career to stall, but now back in Australia Mawson's S5000 title success has set that to rights
