Williams keep on pushing with new upgrades

Published

on

Sept.19 – Williams will test a new front wing and diffuser in Friday free practice for Singapore GP as it struggles to get better its performance.

Williams is currently 9th in the constructors’ points table, with just three points finishes to its name all season

But, the team is refusing to give up and will head to Singapore with new upgrading for their FW33.

“Singapore has all the challenges, for both the drivers and engineers, of a classic street race, but with the addition of it also being held at night,” said technical director Sam Michael.

“There is a large improvement in track grip as the race weekend progresses. There are also more bumps and kerbs to deal with compared to normal and downforce is set to a maximum. Good traction with minimal understeer are always the focus of the car set-up here. We have an upgraded diffuser and a new front wing assembly for the first of the flyaways. We’ll test both of them on Friday.”

For now, Pastor Maldonado is expecting the updates will give Williams improve require to attain a top-ten finish in Singapore GP circuit.

“Marina Bay is a new track for me so I will need to work hard to learn it ready for qualifying. It will be my first time in Singapore and my first time racing at night as well. I really like street circuits so I think I can be quick there. We have some upgrades for this race that we hope will be a big improvement and help us better our last result.”
