Russian GP: Another tough race for Williams Racing
In what would turn out to be another difficult race for the Williams Racing Team their drivers would finish in 16th and 18th with Nicholas Latifi finishing ahead of George Russell.

For George his race would see a promising start from 13th on the grid but he would be forced wide at Turn two and would lose places upon returning to the track. With a Safety Car he would pit early switching to the hard tyre and from there it was a difficult race which included a brake lockup while on the hard tyres which forced him to pit again switching to the mediums. Overall a tough race for both drivers.

But for team-mate Nicholas Latifi his session would see an early mistake on his first run that would see him run wide and over a kerb which would see him forced to pit. On his second ruin this lack or preparation would see him only manage 19th and was out of the session very early. This was disappointing given his encouraging practice pace. It was fantastic to see George into Q2 despite been at a track which from reports doesn't suit the FW43. George achieved what he did based not on some luck but by sheer pace alone, such a change from 2019.

But these result do not fully explain firstly the chaos of the race and secondly how close the Williams team came to scoring their first points of the season. The race would see a series of incidents starting with a Safety Car period coming from an accident involving several cars after the start. This was followed by a restart that would see a major crash on the start straight which would see Nicholas crashing out. This would see a Red Flag and a further restart followed by a later crash involving Stroll.

Such a disappointing result for Williams Racing

But for team-mate George Russell his session would see him suffer a Brake by Wire failure seeing him not able to set a time as the team could not resolve the issue before the end of the session. Qualifying will be very much a session where the potential results for Williams will be hard to assess and whether they can get past Q1 will be interesting to see.

It was very much the case that both drivers were pushing to get the best out of the FW43, but it is still lacking pace and that is not something that is going to come quickly even with new owners.
