Jenson Button's father, a highly popular F1 figure and a long-standing paddock regular, has died.

He was an always-smiling presence in the F1 paddock, rarely - if ever - missing a race.

"Ever since Jenson was a boy, racing go-karts, his dad has been at his side, helping him, supporting him," McLaren boss Martin Whitmarsh said.
