Williams goes full steam ahead, all year updates

Williams revealed their car on Friday and will look to improve on their difficult past few seasons in 2021.

Last year, Williams failed to secure a single point. Despite this, the cars seemed to be getting better, something the team would like to build on this season. That should happen in the FW43B. "The development plan for the 43B is an interesting topic because we’re trying to now design and develop the car for 22, which is an enormous change," said team boss Simon Roberts according to The Race.

2021 not a wasted year

Yet Williams says 2021 will not be a wasted year. Even though the focus is on the new regulations in 2022. "It’s a complete new set of regulations, with no carryover, but it’s also an opportunity because we have done some work on this car. Interestingly, we’ve got a few options that we’re taking to Bahrain to the test," said Roberts.

He continued: "It’s almost a first race upgrade, which is really really cool, I’m really excited about that. And we actually have got an upgrade plan through the year. But it’s going to be pretty modest and I expect like other teams we’ll be looking very carefully at how we put our resource on that."

The last time Williams won a race was in 2012. Then the British racing team took victory at the Spanish Grand Prix. This season Nicholas Latifi and George Russell will once again take their places behind the wheel.
