Claire Williams insists that her Formula 1 team is not in crisis mode following its delayed start to testing, however she says that changes have to be made in order to ensure no repeat problems in the future.
Williams missed the first two days of testing because of some issues which delayed the completion of their 2019 challenger, the FW42. George Russel was only able to give the new car its first laps on Wednesday afternoon.
The team hopes that it’s ability to be competitive will not take a hit because of the delayed start, however, Williams is clear that a complete analysis will have to be done in order to ensure that the team is “fit for purpose” from now on.
“I would say now we have the car on track, we’re back on track,” said Williams. “We’ve still got work to do. But we always said this was going to be a long road.
“We said putting this team back together was going to take time and take work. I think probably we got to car build and we had to go through that process as much as we went through last season, and that process clearly isn’t right at Williams either.
“We haven’t nailed that yet and we need to do some work to make sure it is fit for purpose going into 2020. But it takes time.
“It’s not crisis mode. We’ve got a journey we’re on and we’ve got to make sure everything is fit for purpose: so we don’t make these mistakes in the future, we produce a better race car and we have more success on the race track.”
