Analysis: Will Williams fall in Hungary?
[image type=”none” float=”none” link=”” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” lightbox_video=”” src=”88038″]The upcoming Hungarian Grand Prix could be a significant test of whether the Williams Formula 1 team is developing its car well enough to remain a serious contender.
By out-qualifying Ferrari and leading the first half of the recent British GP, Williams showed a return to the sort of ‘best-of-the-rest’ form it managed consistently during the 2014 F1 season.
But Valtteri Bottas spoke after the race of concerns his team might be less competitive on the twists of the Hungaroring this weekend, after enjoying a largely fruitful run – when it remained dry at least – through the high-speed sweeps of Silverstone.
“Budapest will be a bit more difficult for us, but we should still go there trying to fight for good positions,” said the Finn.
“This [Silverstone] is one of the very good tracks for us, like we saw last year, but we have improved the downforce on the car, which could help us in Budapest.
“It’s very difficult to say in detail how it could be, but we are going forwards all the time.”
