With the Formula 1 World Championship battle set to be fought between Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc in 2022, Jenson Button has admitted that he believes the Ferrari driver understands the defending champion a lot more than Sir Lewis Hamilton did during their battle in 2021.

GP believes there won’t be a repeat of that in 2022. I think Charles understands Max, a lot more than maybe Lewis did,” Button explained in an interview with “This is because he’s raced with him more through the years of junior formulas. “Charles seems very calm, Max is throwing everything at him and Charles seems very relaxed behind the wheel and picking his moments.”





Ferrari vs Red Bull
When pressed on the strength of Ferrari’s car in 2022, Button refused to count out the Red Bull machine, insisting that their car is still a force to be reckoned with. “The Red Bull is still a strong car,” he continued. “We might see Mercedes more competitive in the latter part of the season, but it’s going to take a few races. “Charles is really strong and I think in a car like that, which is very competitive, it’s difficult to beat.”
