'If It's F1, It's Vital'

Williams hoping to improve

The Williams team have had a disappointing 2013 to-date.

The new Williams FW35 has not lived up to it's 2012 FW34 counter-part which managed to drive it's way to the top step of the podium in Spain last year and regularly take points with both Pastor Maldonado and Bruno Senna regularly securing top ten finishes.

This season the Williams simply hasn't had the pace over one-lap to do well in qualifying and neither has it had the race pace to secure a point in either of the opening rounds of this seasons Formula One world championship.

The team are hopeful that an update package will be ready for Spain later this month, but until then they are just hoping to improve the current car through set-up and better understanding.

'After a difficult two races we've been back at the factory going through the data to try to understand where we need to improve, We feel we have a better understanding of where we are and the whole team has been working hard to improve our competitiveness going into the next few races. Ultimately we are looking at a significant upgrade for the Spanish Grand Prix. Williams Technical Director Mike Coughlan told Sky Sports.

With tyre management an important part of the set-up in Formula One, track conditions and the weather can often prove crucial factors to a team performance and Coughlan believes that China could also better suit the Williams in comparison to Malaysia.

'The ambient conditions in China will be kinder although the weather can be quite changeable. The cooler temperatures we expect are not only more favourable for the car but also for both the team and driver.'
