Jenson Button and Jessica Michibata have split after one year of marriage, a spokesperson for the McLaren F1 driver has confirmed.
The pair tied the knot in December last year after a long relationship period, but will now go their separate ways after an 'amicable' break up.
"Jenson and Jessica have decided to go their separate ways and it is very amicable,” a spokesperson told the BBC
. “There is no-one else involved."
The 2009 F1 World Champion and Michibata hit the headlines earlier this year after a St Tropez property they were staying in was robbed, with £30,000 worth of valuables stolen, including an engagement ring.
Button will enter into his 17th consecutive season of F1 racing in 2016, once more with McLaren-Honda.
