Williams chief technical officer Paddy Lowe says the team have already “completed the turnaround” after a disastrous 2018.
Williams finished bottom of the pile last season with just seven points but Lowe expects a significant improvement in the coming campaign. “2018 was an extremely difficult year for Williams,” said Lowe, as reported by Planet F1.

“But the good thing is people have recognised the problems and are working hard on them. “I’m not going to make pinpoint predictions and say we will improve in the World Championship. “But I know we will be better. We have already completed the turnaround.”
Lowe feels Williams should be able to challenge at the front of the grid in the future but he admits it will take time.
He added: “We have experienced and loyal people, we have a great racing car factory, we own our own the land and all the buildings, which is not the case with all racing teams.
“We have a first-class wind tunnel. All the ingredients are there, now it’s all about how we use them.”
Williams have a new-look driver line-up for 2019 with Robert Kubica partnering rookie George Russell, with Lance Stroll departing for Racing Point Force India F1 and Sergey Sirotkin left without a seat.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
