Williams unhappy about Malaysian GP

Best Blogger Tips
Williams had a very poor weekend performance contrary to their pre-season testing form. With their small gearbox , a truly novel idea , and their competitive speed during the pre-season testing , the team looked extremely strong and seemed promising on delivering good performance through out the season.

The Malaysian Grand Prix saw both Williams drivers , Pastor Maldonado and Rubens Barichello ,not finishing the race after failing to make it to Q3.

Adam Parr ,Williams Chairman , quotes : 

"Like everyone at Williams, I am both surprised and frustrated with our start. In spite of having an ambitious concept for the FW33, the benefit of continuity with our engine, and moving into our second season with Rubens, we have come up short.

"First, we have to understand where we are strong and where we are weak. We have had some notable areas of success with the FW33 and we can build on these. We also have some promising improvements coming through for Shanghai and Istanbul and we need to see how these perform."

"We also need to get on top of the reliability issues because these not only affect immediate performance, they also absorb resources that should be focused on improvement."

"We will move forward, but that does not alter the fact that we have started too far behind."

"Therefore, we will be looking not only at how to address the short-term issues - we will be working together to strengthen the team for 2012 and beyond. Every aspect will be reviewed, nothing is sacred, but we will do this methodically and not in a reactive way."

Sam Michael , the team's technical director, also added that they would bring significant updates to the upcoming Chinese Grand Prix after a thorough review of the car, analyzing its strengths and weaknesses.
