Williams F1 compliment ‘very nice’ – Button

Jenson Button is not commenting on speculation he might return to Williams next year.

Last week, the Grove team’s deputy Claire Williams said the possibility that Button might bookend his F1 career at Williams, having made his debut for the team in 2000, “is a great headline”.

“Of course he is going to be an attractive proposition if he is available,” she declared.

Williams’ comments come as McLaren supremo Ron Dennis delays a decision over the Woking team’s 2017 lineup, amid rumours Button will be replaced by Stoffel Vandoorne.

Dennis said the driver issue will not even be discussed until “after Monza”, in September.

So, following Claire Williams’ compliment, 36-year-old Button told Sky: “We would all like someone to say that about us, so that was very nice of her.

“I don’t know what l am doing next year. I want to be enjoying myself again and be in a position whether I can fight for good results, whether it’s a building year, a podium year or a winning year. That’s what I need,” he added.
