“This team has won multiple world championships” – Senior advisor Jenson Button wants his old team Williams to return back to winning ways.
Jenson Button is optimistic from what he has observed at Williams, as they aim to rise from the bottom-place. The multiple-time winning team did not score even a single point last season. Hopes are higher in the Glove-based outfit after the recruitment of Jenson Button.
“The people that are running the team are very experienced, have some great ideas and there’s definitely a good atmosphere within the team. This team has won multiple world championships. Obviously, things change over time and people come and go, but the core of the team is still there.
“When I raced for them, I remember it was a team that was young but still had so much experience, so I look forward to working with them and however much I can help, I will. It’s one of those things that everyone needs to be pulling their weight, everyone needs to give 100 percent, and the team needs to be passionate.
“For every single person that works there, it can’t be just a job, it needs to be passion and a love for the sport. That’s the only way we’re going to fight at the front again.”

Button’s role as advisor would be crucial for the development of both the team and the car. He is also excited about driving heritage cars – the good, old times.
“I’ll be working with the current drivers, I’ll also be working with the academy drivers. In terms of driving the current car, that’s probably a no, but there are definitely some opportunities to drive some heritage cars. And I raced for Williams, so maybe I’ll get a chance to drive that one, which would be lovely.”
