Jenson Button appears on television every week as an analyst. However, the former Formula 1 driver wants to take on more challenges in his life, not ruling out the possibility of working as a team owner one day in the future, he says in Ask Me Anything from Williams.

The Briton has had a rich Formula 1 career. Between 2000 and 2017, he drove cars from Williams, Benetton, Renault, BAR, Honda, Brawn GP and McLaren, respectively. Five years ago he decided to quit, but that doesn't mean he said goodbye to the sport for good.

Button keeps options open for future

It seems to Button that returning as a team owner later on would be a nice challenge. However, that doesn't mean we'll see him back in that capacity anytime soon, as in the interview he explains at length that he doesn't feel like this is the time already to go through life as a team boss.

"It looks like a tough job. Yes, lots of arguing with other team principals, but who knows what the future holds," he notes. "I feel too young at the moment, there’s a lot of other stuff I’d like to do but, yeah, maybe one day."
