Williams hoping to close the gap with new components

After a disastrous start to the 2019 season for Williams, Dave Robson their Senior Race Engineer has revealed that the team are making improvements after testing new components and hopes to close the gap further in the coming races.

Williams have finished last at every race so far this season despite having an overhaul of their driving team. The partnership of Robert Kubica and George Russell is yet to yield a significant with the rookie, Russell outperforming Kubica at every race.

Speaking after the Chinese Grand Prix Dave Robson admitted the team had a good race in China and can see results on the horizon.

“We had an enjoyable race today and were able to race a couple of cars who had found themselves a little out of position following their first lap incidents,” said Robson.

“We had clean, well-driven races from both drivers and were able to execute a sensible one-stop strategy with Robert.

“We have made some improvements to the car this weekend and have started to close the gap.

“We also tested some new components which may help us close the gap further in the coming races.

“The next race on the streets of Baku will pose a new set of challenges, but we are ready to meet those as we continue to learn about the FW42.”
