Williams F1 Team Launches the Williams Renault FW35 ahead of second pre-season test at Barcelona.

At the Circuit de Catalunya Williams revealed 2013 machine FW35 by the regular drivers’ Pastor Maldonado and Valtteri Bottas. Today the Venezuelan Maldonado will test the new FW35.

Team principal Sir Frank Williams says that new FW35 is very competitive vehicle and they are target top podium finish in this season.

“A group of talented people with good imagination and plenty of courage have been working together to build the Williams Renault FW35,” Williams said.

“We will have to wait until Australia to truly see what we have, but we believe it is step forward from last year’s car which was also a very competitive vehicle. Pastor is a delightful character who is a massively determined racer, whilst Valtteri is quieter but still waters run deep and he is a highly gifted driver.

“Williams has been at the top many times over the last 30 years. It’s the nature of the sport to have ups and downs, but when we are down we always fight our way back. I’m hoping that with the current team we have in place, our new FW35, the combined talent of Pastor, Valtteri and Susie, and the continued support from our partners; we will be in a position to challenge the very best.”

” Williams technical director Mike Coughlan described the car as “better” and “more refined” than its predecessor.

“Given the rule stability over the winter, I’m pleased with the gains that we’ve been able to make with this car,” Coughlan said. “It’s a better, more refined Formula One car than the FW34 and I think everyone involved in the project can feel proud of the work they’ve done.”

“The Coanda effect is going to be a big thing for us. There’s been no rule clarification concerning this area of the car, so we’ll work closely with Renault to maximise the available gains. Use of the DRS is more restricted this year, so we’ll take some resource away from that and focus on other areas.”
