Sir Frank Williams is adamant that the new FW35 represents a major step forward from the car that won last year’s Spanish GP.
Williams says that the pieces are in place for a strong season.
“A group of talented people with good imagination and plenty of courage have been working together to build the Williams Renault FW35,” he said.
“We will have to wait until Australia to truly see what we have, but we believe it is step forward from last year’s car which was also a very competitive vehicle. Pastor is a delightful character who is a massively determined racer, whilst Valtteri is quieter, but still waters run deep, and he is a highly gifted driver.
“Williams has been at the top many times over the last 30 years. It’s the nature of the sport to have ups and downs, but when we are down we always fight our way back. I’m hoping that with the current team we have in place, our new FW35, the combined talent of Pastor, Valtteri and Susie, and the continued support from our partners; we will be in a position to challenge the very best.”
