Button pleased with Williams revival

Jenson Button admits he is happy to see Williams competing at the right end of the grid again.

After a couple of seasons in the doldrums, the Grove squad have turned things around this year and have already picked up three podiums to lie fourth in the Constructors' standings, ahead of the likes of Force India and McLaren.

Button, who got his F1 entry through Williams more than a decade ago, admits the hard work from the likes of owner Frank Williams and current deputy team principal Clare Williams are paying off.

"I think they've put a lot of effort into doing well this year. They've spent a lot of resources on getting a good team of people, especially aerodynamically," he told Autosport.

"They've done a great job and I'm happy for Frank and Claire to see them competitive.

"They've lost a lot of points this year through incidents or just not getting everything out of the car, which is good for us, because otherwise they'd be miles in front!"

"Their main aim is going to be being consistent and doing a good job as a team over the race weekend, because they've got the package to be very quick - it's just whether they can get the best out of it."
