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.

rob01: Why are you running this news? It's a private matter and shouldn't be open for discussion.
Really? Vettel's girlfriend having a baby was also a private matter then but it didn't stop you commenting on it :)
