Progress on Williams' new F1 car is growing fast according to George Russell

George Russell said earlier in December that Williams want to be a team fighting in the midfield next season. For that to happen, William needs to do some work during the winter break, and according to Russell that work is well underway. 

Russel was the only driver in the 2019 season to score zero points. The developments seemed to be slow, but are now progressing at a rapid pace according to the young British driver. 

"The team has completely reset the aerodynamics philosophy. We had to take that blow to lay the foundation back and build everything from there. We were not surprised by the position we were in once the season started. We were hoping that the recovery would go faster, but it took longer to lay the foundation than expected," Russell told Motorsport.com. 

Positive developments

The Williams driver says that the rapid improvements ensure strong development.

"We can really see that in the wind tunnel with the downforce we had at the beginning of the year and what we have now. We also know what we will get next year. The only thing is that we don't know to what extent the rest is better but I can already tell you that if the rest don't improve, we'll be fully involved in that fight again."
