Baby Jenson Sutton with Jenson Button

Eight-week-old Jenson Sutton met Formula One World Champion Jenson Button at Autosport International. Baby Jenson was introduced to the star driver he was named after at the annual motorsport show at the NEC in Birmingham.

The naming theme doesn't stop there, as Baby Jenson's middle name is Lewis, after Button's new McLaren team mate and 2008 World Champion Lewis Hamilton.

The proud parents, Trevor and Mandy Sutton, from Wyken in Coventry, were guests at Autosport International to meet their Formula One hero, Jenson Button. Trevor, an avid F1 fan, said that he'd been a follower of Formula One for a long time. "Meeting Jenson Button was an amazing experience and something we will never forget. We will make sure baby Jenson grows up knowing where his name came from and that he met his namesake at the show.”

Button, who was at Autosport International at the NEC on Saturday and Sunday, greeted Baby Jenson and family joking: "He's got a similar surname to mine too...so he's not got much pressure on his shoulders, does he?"
