Singapore GP: ROKiT Williams Grand Prix Preview
The ROKiT Williams team makes the move to Singapore for the 2019 Singapore GP, the first in a series of races outside Europe. This race seees the drivers run under lights on a track that is demanding on both the cars and also the drivers. For team drivers Robert Kubica and George Russell they are both looking forward to this race with Robert having had prior experience of the track while for George it is his first time at this circuit. With this race placing a high level of importance on downforce it may be a difficult race for the Williams team but Hungary was a similar track to Singapore and Williams performed better than expected, so maybe Singapore will produce a better than expected performance.
Italian GP: Race sees mixed results for ROKiT Williams
The 2019 Italian GP would see the ROKiT Williams Team achieve a mixed result with George Russell finishing in 14th and Robert Kubica 17th. George's race would see him achieve a result that was better than he expected while for Robert Kubica his race, despite making a good start to lead his team-mate, was far more of a struggle having to make an extra pit stop after a break lockup damaged a set of tyres. But both drivers did struggle with the lack of straight line pace from the FW42. The team is still not where all concerned would want it to be.

The second Friday practice session for the 2019 Italian GP would see the ROKiT Williams team produce what were expected results with both cars slowest in the session.

After the frustrations of the Belgian GP where the FW42 was hampered by a lack of pace on the steraights. Monza being a similar circuit the team is again facing the prospect of a difficult race.

For George Russell and Robert Kubica both are looking forward to returning to the circuit especially Robert who secured his first F1 podium at this event.
Belgian GP: Solid but difficult race for ROKiT Williams
The 2019 Belgian GP would see the ROKiT Williams Team complete the race with a solid if still difficult result with both George Russell and Robert Kubica still suffering from the lack of pace from the FW42. George would finish 15th after a difficult start then settling into a somewhat lonely race. For Robert his race would see him start from the pit lane and like George would struggle for pace from the FW42. Both drivers would complete single pit stops during the race.
Belgian GP: ROKiT Williams Qualifying a further struggle
Qualifying for the 2019 Belgian GP would see the ROKiT Williams team suffer further frustrations with only one driver been able to set a time. George Russell would finish in 19th after his run but for team-mate Robert Kubica he would not complete a timed lap having suffered a major engine failure on his out lap. The start grid will see George start from 15th as a result of other driver penalties but Robert will start from last. The race is going to be a continuation of what has been a very difficult weekend for the etam.
Belgian GP: FP3 ROKiT Williams difficult weekend continues
The final Saturday practice session for the 2019 Belgian GP would be very much a repeat of the previous sessions with both ROKiT Williams drivers finishing close to the bottom of the times. George Russell would again finish ahead of his team-mate Robert Kubica but their positions relative to the cars in front remained unchanged with George some 1.2s behind the closest car. Robert would be a further 0.5s further back. It really does not look like their positions will change come qualifying.
Belgian GP: FP2 not any better for ROKiT Williams Racing
George Russell would return for the second Friday practice session for the 2019 Belgian GP but the session was again a very difficult time for the ROKiT Williams team as both George and Robert Kubica would finish slowest in the times. George would be ahead of team-mate Robert with both drivers around four seconds off the pace of the quickest times but more of a concern was that George was 1.5s off the pace of the car in front. This weekend in Spa as George predicted is agoing to be a very tough one for the team given the lack of pace from the FW42 on this circuit.
Belgian GP: Difficult FP1 for ROKiT Williams Racing
The opening Friday practice ession would be an uneventful one for the ROKiT Williams Team but despite this it was still a difficult one with both drivers slowest. This session would see Nicholas Latifi replace George Russell and at the end of the session it would be Nicholas who would be ahead of team-mate Robert Kubica. The team would complete three runs on the soft tyre while making various changes including the rear wing on Latifi's car during the session. As George Russell had said this track was not going to be one that would see the FW42 perform well.
