Williams on being first car on track in testing: We wanted to make a real point

Williams were the first on-track at winter testing this morning and this was a deliberate intention as the team wanted to make a point. The team failed to make the start of testing last year but they are ready for the start of the 2020 season and Claire Williams is pleased with how the team are preparing. 

"This is our chassis for this year and it and it was brilliant to see it go out first this morning," Claire Williams said. "We wanted to make a real point, after last year's dramas, that we were here and ready to go. We just wanted to get today done and under our belts. It's going well so far."

   

Williams performed well during the first day of testing and in Russell's first day in his new car he clocked up 73 laps and from the results on track, the team have a lot to be hopeful for. 

Williams will use the rest of testing to fine-tune their car in order to make them more competitive than they were last season.
