Williams driver Sergey Sirotkin is looking ‘positive’ ahead of the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim this weekend.

The team have brought a new front wing part for the FW41, which is the team’s development focus during the weekend.

Sirotkin set a 1:15.8 in the first practice session, landing him P16 on the grid, while in the second he set a 1:15.4 which placed him P19 on the grid.

He said: “Today we had a very busy programme in both sessions, where we mainly focused on the front wing.

“We found some very interesting and positive things which gave us better pace to work with.

“Overall, it is a good step in the right direction.”

He added: “We are at the beginning of a positive road ahead.”

Chief Technical Officer, Paddy Lowe said: “It was a pretty good day.

“We brought a new front wing to this event which is completely new from left to right.

He added: “We conducted a very thorough programme in FP1 with a lot of data flow measurements and visualisation.”

Lowe said the team were happy with the results of the programme.

“We’ve adopted the front wing for the rest of the weekend, and it did every we intended and we received positive comments from the drivers.”

He added: “We have a lot of analysis to do tonight to determine how we configure the car”.
