Williams Week – 26th October 2020 – The Week in Review

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

“The car was very fast, because as a team we were the first to understand that we had to heat the front tyre on the rim.” – Alex Wurz

Wurz ridicules wacky Maldonado conspiracy theory

“I don’t think we should drop Friday altogether but I do believe three practices and four hours of practice is too much. Two sessions would be nice.” – George Russell

Axing Friday practice would be “chaotic”

“Even though I didn’t feel like I got the most out of the car [at the Eifel Grand Prix] I feel like there were some steps made” – Nicholas Latifi

Latifi pleased with qualifying progress

“I don’t think it is a track we have on the simulator either so I will probably have to watch some onboard videos, try and see if it is on any racing games I can get, not F1 simulator stuff.” – Nicholas Latifi

Williams entering Portuguese GP blind without Portimão simulator

“But if you make a mistake in the simulator, you press the reset button and start over. In reality, you give your mechanics a bit of work, to say the least.” – George Russell

‘It’s not like we p*ss ourselves while driving’

“I think, especially in qualifying with how our car is, I am having to shift away from how I instinctively want to drive.” – Nicholas Latifi

Williams forces Latifi to change driving style

“I’ve actually not spoken to the new owners about it, because from my side, there are no concerns.” – George Russell

Russell unconcerned about Williams F1 future despite Perez links

“At the end, it’s Williams’ decision.” – Toto Wolff

Russell’s Williams F1 future is out of Mercedes’ hands

“So it would be not justified for him to not be on the grid next year. But that’s how Formula 1 is. It can be cruel sometimes.” – Esteban Ocon

Russell deserves to keep his seat but F1 “can be cruel”
