Jenson Button's birthday is coming up, and Williams is celebrating the occasion with a special message from Alexander Albon, who is making his comeback in Formula One with the British team. When trying out Button's old race car, however, things don't go quite as planned...

Button, who turned 42 on Wednesday, made his debut at Williams in 2000. As part of his congratulations, Albon stands by the Briton's old car, which he's happy to try out.

Albon stuck in old Williams Button

"I know you were a bit skinnier than me at the time," Albon says before getting in. Once in Button's old seat, things start to squeak and creak. The Thai driver notes that everything is a lot smaller. Not just the steering wheel, but the cockpit itself.

So it looks like the brand new Williams driver will need some help to be hoisted out of the car. Albon will be working closely with Button, who returns to the British racing stable in an advisory role, in the near future.
