Williams hoping for improved reliability

By on Monday, October 1, 2012

Williams head to the Japanese Grand Prix in an optimistic mood, despite a double retirement around the streets of Singapore.

Pastor Maldonado challenged for a podium early on in the race but suffered from a hydraulics failure, while Bruno Senna's KERS packed up with a couple of laps remaining.

"Following Singapore we have been working hard to ensure that the cars run as reliably as possible for the remaining races", said Mark Gillan, Williams's Chief Operations Engineer. "Given the excellent pace shown at Singapore in both qualifying and the race, we expect to be strong in Suzuka and will bring further updates as part of our continuous improvement process."

Bruno Senna says he is looking forward to racing at Suzuka for the third time.

"It is similar to Spa-Francorchamps so it’s a real drivers’ track. You can get variable weather in Japan ranging from warm and sunny to rain that stops qualifying. It’s always exciting though and we have a good potential to be strong there", said the Brazilian.
