Jenson Button: Leclerc needs to challenge Hamilton

Jenson Button: Leclerc needs to challenge Hamilton

"I'm sure it's highly complex and suspect they've taken a long time to work it out", he said.

On Wednesday, the first day all of the 2020 cars were out on track together, Ferrari's Charles Leclerc managed only the 11th fastest time.

"We will go through all the data in the next days". Button, however, doesn't buy it.

Alpha Tauri has targeted fifth position in its rebrand year and it certainly has a strong foundation to achieve that - the AT01 vehicle is running Red Bull's gearbox and suspension from last year. That's incredibly bold given the current state of F1 and how hard it has been for midfield teams to finish on the podium on merit, but the outfit formerly known as Force India has overachieved in the past and clearly hopes to do so again this year.

Should the Scuderia decide to replace Vettel, Button suggests Renault's Daniel Ricciardo might get the nod instead.

Ferrari has actually additionally made it clear that it anticipates to reveal even more speed today, keeping in mind: "Over the upcoming three days, the final session before the season starts in Australia on March 15, the team will start working on performance, while carrying out qualifying and race simulations".

'As soon as they realise they have to be fighting Lewis, rather than each other, they will have a great chance of being at the front of the fight, and fighting for the championship'. The auto is a step forward as I said.

'There is a certain driver driving a yellow vehicle reasonably well who I am sure would be up for switching to red, ' he said.

Wendy Willams Has a New Man and His Name is …
Williams recently revealed on her show that she had a new man who gifted her a heart-shaped diamond necklace for Valentine's Day . It appears that things are heading effectively for Wendy Williams immediately after his divorce from Kevin Hunter .

'You want him to have a fight on his hands.

Last season Ferrari had a few nightmares with team orders as the pit wall tried to figure who was the best-placed driver.

The midfield battle has been better than the championship fight in recent seasons - this year's could be closer than ever.

"I think we're really focused on ourselves, trying to understand the vehicle, to correlate the data with all the data we have got back home - wind tunnel data and simulations", he said.

"But I can't wait to be watching what unfolds at Ferrari. I think that we know we can improve it from where we are, so time will tell is probably the best answer".

Nevertheless, he will be at races this year as a pundit for Sky Sports F1.

'I think the dynamic was just wrong within the team.

'I think he will be a much more confident driver and will make less mistakes in 2020. I can ask the tougher and more personal questions and they're more likely to answer'.
