Williams preview the US GP

Williams preview the US GP

Back on form at the previous round, Williams are hoping for another strong showing and a double points-finish in Texas...

Pastor Maldonado: "After a good performance in the last race in Abu Dhabi I'm looking forward to getting in the car again and seeing what we can achieve in Austin. The team has worked very hard to get the car back to the sort of pace that can consistently challenge for points and that is what we will be looking for in this race. The track is new so it will be challenging to get the right set up, but that is the same for all the teams. It looks like a fun and challenging track to drive from the work we have done in the simulator and the American fans should bring a really good atmosphere as well."

Bruno Senna: "I'm excited to go to Austin because I'm hearing lots of good things about the track. It has both high speed and technical sections so it will be tricky to learn for all the drivers and it's always interesting to see how drivers cope with a new layout and new corners they haven't driven before. The weather can be very varied in Texas as well, with lots of wind and drops in temperature so that could be a factor. The car has definitely come on a lot in the past few weeks so we take good momentum into this race."

Mark Gillan, Chief Operations Engineer: "On the back of a good result in Abu Dhabi the whole team is really looking forward to the last two races of the season. We will be pushing hard right to the end with further updates in order to try to secure seventh position in the constructors championship. As this is a new track, with no historic database of information to call upon, it places even more importance on one's circuit simulation tools and simulator to ensure that we're fully prepared in terms of both car set-up and proposed run programme. Pirelli bring their hard and medium tyres and as normal for any new track one will need to be careful on analysing the track versus the tyre evolution when making strategy predictions."
