Williams has followed the 2011 trend and used the buzzword ‘aggressive’ to describe the new FW33, testing today in an interim livery.
Sam Michael said: “Until you start testing you’re never sure how you’re going to stack up against the opposition, but we’re optimistic. We think this is a good car, but we’ll have a better overall picture in a few weeks time.
“The design of this year’s car has been pretty smooth,” continues Sam. “We’ve improved our way of working by increasing the communication between the mechanical and aerodynamic departments, and that improved our decision making processes. It allowed us to increase the optimisation time spent on each part of the car.”
