Williams thinks it is too low: 'Believe we know why we didn’t achieve them'

Williams hoped to breathe new life into the team this season with the recruitment of Alexander Albon, but for now the stable is struggling to compete. With just three points gained, it is well down at the bottom of the constructors' championship. In Jost Capito's opinion this is too low, he stated in conversation with Motorsportmagazine.com.

Last season Williams had the Haas team under them, but the American team has made great strides in recent months. With Nicholas Latifi still without a point and Albon securing three points, the team is well behind Aston Martin.

"If we would have achieved our expectations, when we do that simulation, we would be in the upper midfield," says the team boss. "And so it seems the objectives were right. We just didn’t have the processes yet in place to achieve these objectives, but we believe we know why we didn’t achieve them."

"And we’re doing steps now, for example establishing a proper project management system that was not in place before, getting more disciplined in the whole development process, and doing some restructuring to become more efficient."

Williams working on future of team

Just this week Williams came out with the news that Albon will be back at the stable for the next few years. Latifi's future is still uncertain. It is possible that he will be replaced next year, with the name of Nyck de Vries being mentioned.
