Jenson Button is going back to Williams - returning to the team that gave him his F1 debut in 2000 in the role of senior advisor. It's the latest step in the masterplan of Williams's new owners that took over in 2020, and in this video Scott Mitchell explains what Button's role will involve when he gets to work with the team he twice tried to rejoin during his career as a driver.

Jenson Button is an asset to ANY F1 team. Williams has now got what they didn't have before. And extra constructive brain across the whole formula table. He is constructable creative for car and driver. For decisions and for forward thinking. Let us just hope that personality misunderstandings are kept out of everything. If so, a light is being lit.

Will it make the signing of Button give them more performance, no, but it gives the team a face, something they have not had in many years.

Does JB still have super license for 2021? I know for 2020 season he did. Just wondering if he does... why they don’t maybe use him for some car development too maybe even throw him in for a half day of testing?. Williams have a great engine, they’re going to have a lot of great parts and components from Merc now but they have two super inexperienced drivers with almost no car development experience. Kubica fills this role to compensate for Gio’s lack of experience at Alfa. Just saying it’s not like Williams is going to be fighting the front of the midfield right away they need a decent chassis to do so going forward why not give a few hours of testing time and include JB a bit. A half a day less of testing to help improve the car going forward especially with new regulations being developed isn’t going to say hurt Williams overall season performance or either drivers overall season ending position. If they were fighting for 3rd or best of the rest etc. they ok maybe every little thing counts but not for Williams and not yet. JB has experience in this and is good at it! Wondering if they will use him at all in that capacity or strictly have him in a suit never a race suit even to just help develop 🤷🏼‍♀️

Maybe now he can lead Williams into not being dead last with no points and then everyone will be laughing at haas instead

I am out of touch. Didn't the Williams F1 team get sold? So is Button the ghost official of a non-existent team? Maybe I should pay more attention.

So Russell does really great for Mercedes and then Button comes in with the experience of driving for Brawn who became Mercedes? Bottas must be getting nervous...

For us that followed Button from his GP2 days...this chap “prepped” F1 Championship-level cars for many years and was unceremoniously sacked, until BrawnGP Championship Year! At least he is worth 3-4 personnel! Great move WilliamsGP!!

I'm sure Jenson has all kinds of grandiose ideas about what his "role" will be, and I'm just as sure his role will actually be just participating in photo ops and rubbing shoulders with star-struck Dorilton executives.

Sounds more like a PR position than anything. So what I'm hearing is, Williams is going to pay him to be available to answer questions now and then, but he will have no real duties or authority of any kind. Sweet. Where do I sign up? :-)
Brockside Månad sedan
I think George and Jensen will dovetail very well together. They appear to be of similar temperament, are good at feeding back information and of course Jenson has the experience of being an ex champion.

Why? Most over-rated driver ever. His single championship fell into his lap purely because of a series of lucky circumstances. Of course the predominately English F1 fans are not going to agree with this.

Williams need a shot in the arm and to bring a driver back in an ambassadorial role is not a bad thing. Look at what Niki did for Ferrari and Mercedes.

Hopefully he can direct the team to where they need to focus their efforts. He knows what drivers want, and he knows how to get it to happen. I would assume he knows which corners need to be sought after more than others as well, after being in the sport so long. All in all, it should definitely be a help to the team. I don't expect Williams to just be in the mid-field fight in 2021, but perhaps with the new cars in 2022. His insight should help a lot.

He knows how to win , something that Williams needs. However I’ll lay off the conspiracy theories as I have no idea if he is eligible for a super license

Timsalt3100 Månad sedan
I think 2021 will just be a copy of 2020 Williams might be looking at 2022 with a new car and with a closer Mercedes partnership the new car might be pretty good. And i highly suspect Russell will end up at Mercedes. even though Hamilton is obviously scared of him hence why he does not want him partnering him.

Jenson seems pretty humble as well which, in my opinion, is really crucial so this has been a great decision for Williams.

How much do you rekon he would get for this sort of role with Williams? Has there been similar roles in other teams before? (One comes to mind and that was Nikki)
