Williams Week – 19th August 2019 – The Week in Review

A round-up of interesting Williams related stories found on the web this week:

“obviously we needed to focus on aero performance as well because that’s where we were really down after the winter. But through putting in this new approach that we did last year, we always knew that was going to take some time to come to fruition.” – Claire Williams

Williams confident they’ve established the right design direction for 2019/20

“If you look at all the drivers who’ve made it into F1, they’ve all come with significant backing. Whether that’s personal or through sponsors or a team, none of them have paid their way scraping the barrel.” – Jamie Chadwick

W Series winner Chadwick sets sights on F1

“I wouldn’t want to burn George. I think it would come too early.” – Toto Wolff

‘Too early’ to put George Russell up against Lewis Hamilton

“Personally, I would like to see fewer races because you take down supply and increase demand, that’s basic economics.” – Claire Williams

Williams wants less races, not more

“I’ve seen him race really well in so many different circumstances, leading in the front, controlling the race, coming through traffic, wet weather, dry weather, when things have gone wrong he’s kept at it. I’ve got a feeling he might be a guy to watch.” – Pat Symonds

Russell is world champion material

“It’s not an easy season for him, but neither Robert nor George is able to show all their skills in this car. But Robert is doing everything I expect from him.” – Claire Williams
