Jenson Button had an inglorious homecoming as F1's new world champion on Tuesday morning after touching down in Britain on board his teammate Rubens Barrichello's private jet.

The Virgin sponsorship date had been set prior to his title triumph at Interlagos last weekend, but even so the local media noted the irony of his informal coronation as world champion in the surrounds of the Bluewater Shopping Centre.

Located in Kent, The Times called the location "grim and facile", and the reporter disputed claims that 2000 countrymen were present in the cold weather. "It looked more like five or six hundred to me," he said.
