Williams thrilled to be back with Renault 2012

Published

Aug.09 – The Williams F1 chairman Adam Parr expecting the future looks promising for his team following a change in personnel ahead of the 2012 season.

In 2010 the top four teams were followed by Renault in fifth, then Williams, Force India, Sauber and Toro Rosso. This season Lotus-Renault has 66 points, Sauber 35, Force India 26, and Toro Rosso 22. But Williams get only 4 points, down in 9th place in the table.

Williams F1 chairman thinks the shake-up will put Williams in a better position for the future and is also looking forward to using Renault engines from next year.

“There is a real sense of optimism about the future,” Parr told Autosport.

“Everybody in the team is thrilled to be back with Renault next year, very happy with the new people coming in. I think people needed to feel change. Everyone individually has been doing the best they can. It’s not that people are disliked. On the contrary, I think everyone likes the people who have been leading the team in the recent past.

“But there’s the sense that we are not getting the results and we needed a change, and people like what we are doing and where we are going.”

Williams F1 chairman Adam Parr is still resolute to salvage something from this season and says no-one in the team will be giving up despite much of the focus now switching to 2012.

“We are halfway through the season. We just have to do a better job. No one in this team has given up on this year, we will keep going until we do better. It’s all one can say.” He added.
