Jenson Button MBE, the recently retired Formula 1 driver, now has an honorary degree in engineering to add to his list of achievements.
The 36-year-old driver from Frome, in Somerset, retired from racing after November’s conclusion to the F1 season.
Addressing an audience at the University of Bath, he said: “I didn’t go to university and work hard in my early years, but I would say that a lot of my achievements in motorsport are down to my engineering understanding of a racing car.”
