That's good to know, we are starting with a more predictable car. Hopefully we can find some answers. I just want Williams to build a car we can actually go racing with, even if thats towards the back to start with. At least that way we will get to the bottom of what's required. I do sometimes wonder though. Would the rules allow us to go to Dallara and say we want your F1 chassis and to change to that. I know we haven't got the money. Just wondering if the rules allowed it

I'm encouraged to hear that the wind tunnel and data at the factory actually correlate with what they see on the actual race car... Which race car, I don't know, as has been reported that the 2 cars are far from identical.

If the instruments and tools actually work this year, then that's a huge step in the right direction! All they need now is the staff to understand it and make significant gains....

I read it as GR is having a positive influence on RK.

If I understand what's being said here -- and that's not an easy thing -- the team met its performance targets, but those targets misjudged what it would take to be competitive even in the midfield. I wonder whose job it was to decide on those performance targets. Can't wait To find Out.

Isn't that what Sirotkin was referring to in an interview before pre season testing? That the car was expected to be 2 seconds slower than last year and when the Williams rolled out it was indeed slower (not the 2 seconds) but everyone else was ahead of last year or there abouts.

Kubica said same just after Barcelona test, and then GR came to similar conclusions after Australia, what influence are you talking about?
