At the other end of the grid, nice to see that Williams might not be the slowest on the grid this year. (No malice towards Alpha Tauri, but I’ve got a soft spot for Williams having started watching in the mid 90s Rothmans era)
Really interesting thing about the Aston is no-one’s pointing to any one thing that’s allowed them to jump up the grid this year - usually by this point people are starting to talk about where they’ve found their pace, but all anyone can suggest is they’re getting the basics right at the moment.

Button is going NASCAR racing in Texas, Chicago and Indianapolis.
Following the announcement that he is going to be one of the drivers in the ‘Garage 56’ car at Le Mans this year this isn’t all the surprising. I do like it when drivers step out of their comfort zone and try things outside of the series in which they made their name.
