Jenson Button has made his first official appearance as a McLaren driver. Although he signed for the team in November, contractual issues with Brawn meant he could not officially work for them until 2010.

Although he is currently holidaying in Hawaii, McLaren released a short video on their website, showing him in the team uniform for the first time.

"Hi everyone, and Happy New Year," he said. "It is a real pleasure to be part of the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team and I am looking forward to working with you all in 2010."

Button is due to make his first public appearance for the team at the Autosport International Show in Birmingham later this month.
