Rubens said: “I feel good. I feel that the team is doing a good job on what they’re doing for next year.”
“It’s an aggressive style – the approach for next year’s car seems to be quite aggressive, which is good. I’m up for it, I like it.”
AS for whether or not he was confident that this car would see the Williams team move forward compared to it rivals Rubens added: “We can never say that, because if you talked to every team right now they would sell you a winning car for next year. It’s a bit on the fantasy side right now. Some [new cars] are going better, some are going even better.
“But ours in the tunnel seems to be going okay. We just need to keep our feet on the ground and work with it.”
As for how he saw the Williams teams performances in 2010 Rubens felt that after the race in Turkey the team moved forward.
Rubens said: “I think the turnaround was after Istanbul, where we sort of got to the bottom of the problem.
“There was a change in the characteristic of the downforce coming onto the car, so we had to change the wind tunnel for that, and it made it better. After that it was an improvement all the way through – bang, bang, bang.
“Even though it has been very down in terms of results the whole year long, the team conquered a lot and progressed. We overperformed in qualifying a little bit on new tyres, but we still had pretty decent races.”
