Williams Racing‘s head of vehicle performance Dave Robson is hoping for a positive result at the Bahrain Grand Prix.

The winter testing went well for the team, with no major car issues and all three drivers putting in some speedy lap times. Williams opted to give Roy Nissany a day in the car before allowing the race drivers to take over for the final two days.

Robson said: “The three days of pre-season testing went well, with the car running flawlessly throughout. Although the conditions were tricky at times, we learned a lot about the car and have now had time to look through a lot of the data that we collected.

Instead of making additional trips home, the Williams team opted to stay in Bahrain. This has made making any changes to the car a little more difficult than what it would have been at their factory at Grove but nonetheless, the team have prevailed on.

With the cars having stayed in Bahrain, making changes is a little more difficult than normal, but nonetheless, we have a couple of new items to look at this weekend as we seek to improve the performance of the FW43B.

Robson believes the team are in a good position, with drivers George Russell and Nicholas Latifi feeling comfortable with both the car and the track. Williams will be hoping this will be the start of the end of their point-less ways.

With both drivers having enjoyed high mileage test days, including race-style running, they are both in a good position ahead of this weekend and are comfortable with both the car and the track. We are all looking forward to getting back to racing and hope that we can start the season off with a positive result here in Sakhir.
