Bottas gets turn with new Williams F1 nose

Valtteri Bottas will get his turn with Williams’ new front nose and wing this weekend in China.

Two weeks ago in Bahrain, it was teammate Felipe Massa who ran the new pieces, with the Brazilian admitting the jury is out as to whether or not they are actually an improvement.

“We will again have only one new nose here, but this time it will be on the other car,” Massa said.

“We have to see how it works and if it is really better, or not, as in Bahrain it was hard to evaluate it. At the moment I am not 100 per cent sure,” he admitted.

Asked why there is still only one new nose available, Massa said the next version is “in production”.

Meanwhile, the new American team Haas is debuting a new front wing this weekend in China, but boss Gunther Steiner said both cars are fitted with copies.

“It is impossible to predict what kind of results we will achieve by the end of the season, so our policy is that the drivers get the same equipment,” he said, referring to the fact that Romain Grosjean is currently ahead in points.
