Williams’ preseason has been hampered by further delays to the delivery of their 2019 car, with their start date now pushed back to Wednesday.
Already set back by the news that they would miss the first day of preseason testing, the Williams F1 team have confirmed that the earliest day that they will commence testing is Wednesday.
The team had already cancelled their scheduled filming day due to delays with the delivery of their 2019 car, the FW42.
Deputy Team Principal Claire Williams said in a statement:
“It is looking more likely than not that we will now not be in a position to run on track until Wednesday at the earliest. This is obviously extremely disappointing, but it is unfortunately the situation we are in. We will be getting the FW42 on track as soon as we are able.”
Having finished at the foot of the constructors’ championship in 2018, the team will be hoping to make up for lost time and deliver the performance gains necessary to climb through the grid.
They will compete in 2019 with Grand Prix winner Robert Kubica and Mercedes junior driver George Russell.
