Williams encourages Button - and his drivers!

SIR FRANK WILLIAMS says that he is still interested in the career of Jenson Button - even if the youngster had a difficult year in 2001. Williams told pressmen that if Button did better than Ralf Schumacher and Juan Pablo

Montoya then he would have a chance to drive for Williams in 2003. The team has first option on Button's services for 2003. The team also has an option on Brazilian Antonio Pizzonia.

Williams is thus well-supplied with drivers in case there is a problem or one of his regular drivers does not perform as expected this year.
