    No way Mercedes or Lewis don't want to get a deal done and move on. But I'm sure GR would love it if they couldn't agree to something.

    Jenson Button has joined the glorious Williams team as a senior advisor.

    https://www.bbc.com/sport/formula1/55767090

    Jenson Button has joined the Williams team as a senior adviser.

    The move takes Button back to the team that gave him his Formula 1 debut in 2000, before he went on to become 2009 world champion and win 15 grands prix.

    Button, 40, said Williams' role in his career and the "history and heritage" meant they were "close to my heart".

    He said: "I am going to do my part to help the team back to the front. I can't wait to spend time with the drivers and the staff."

    Williams were bought out by investment group Dorilton Capital last summer, and founder Sir Frank Williams and his family are no longer involved. The team are going through a restructuring aimed at reviving their fortunes after three seasons of finishing last in the championship.

    New chief executive officer Jost Capito, who starts with the team next month, said: "Bringing Jenson back on board is another positive step to help us move forward as a team, both on and off track.

    "Jenson has always been a friend of the team and so it is great to welcome him back into the Williams family.

    "Back in 2000, Sir Frank saw the promising talent Jenson had as a driver and gave him his first opportunity in F1.

    "He more than fulfilled that initial promise throughout a glittering career that culminated in World Championship glory.

    "More recently, he has shown his acumen in both the business and broadcasting worlds and remains a widely respected figure in the paddock. All this experience will add another layer to our transformation both technically and as a business."

    Williams said Button would "provide advice and guidance to the team at Grove, along with helping support and develop both race and academy drivers" and would "attend a number of grands prix" with the team.

    He will continue in his role as an analyst for TV channel Sky Sports.

    His time with Ferrari has not been kind.

    Interesting video.

    I do find it a bit strange that James is smiling throughout this whole video explaining all of the issued and troubles to the car. If anything you would think hed be pissed off, so I wonder if they overtook many of those rule changes and made it work decently. Or he was happy during the video. Time will tell.

    Also, see you later DAS!

    IIRC, there were reports that the top teams have already clawed back the downforce that was supposed to be taken away by the 2021 regs.
    Which could be an issue with tires as the 2021 tires were built with less loads in mind.

    Lewis signs a one year deal with Merc.
    I am surprised that it is only a one year deal.

    I'm not surprised. Hes going with the safe bet as I'm sure Merc will dominate yet again given the minimal differences in the car this year. Then next year he is open to go to whoever has the best car (yet again).

    I was kinda hoping for George to be in that merc to make it somewhat interesting year.

    Not surprised. Sounds like high maintenance on a tail end of career and 2022 will change everything anyway.

    Good news for RBR.

    Alonso hit by car while cycling though, seems to be OK with some broken bones so might miss season start

    Does anymore know if they publish fuel flow and amount used data by race?

    I wanted to see if Salo's comment about Ferrari being punished via fuel restrictions were true.

    They do not. If it is indeed true, there would be some really tight NDAs from customer teams so we'll never know unless someone breaks that.

    You'd probably rip most of yours out too if you had to deal with the muppets at Ferrari for that many years.
