Williams positive about future: 'Button is an asset to the team'

In 2022, Williams will get advice from a legend within Formula 1, namely Jenson Button. Nicholas Latifi thinks that the Briton can not only help the team really well, but also him as a driver.

The British team had to say goodbye to George Russell, but Alexander Albon will join the team. He returns to the Formula 1 grid after a year on the sidelines. The team can continue to count on Nicholas Latifi who will drive his third consecutive season at Williams.

Despite both drivers not being rookies anymore, Button can really help the team with his advice according to Latifi: "I think he has been a great asset to the team. However, he has a lot of experience in the sport and his perspective as a driver means a lot to me, also from a personal point of view," he told Formulapassion.it.

Latifi takes on leadership role

The Canadian has previously indicated that he would like to take on the leadership role next season. He is sure that the experience of the Briton can help him a lot in that, as he is not very experienced yet. "Personally, I am still at the beginning of my Formula One career and he has already given me valuable advice on how to deal with certain circumstances."
