The Australian Grand Prix Corporation podcast In the Fast Lane has released this week’s episode with special guest, Williams Deputy Team Principal, Claire Williams.
Williams joined In the Fast Lane co-hosts Matt Clayton and Michael Lamonato to discuss the improved fortunes of one of the most beloved teams in Formula 1®, and her thoughts on the protest against Racing Point.
“We’ve obviously had an incredibly difficult two years, but we’ve always said we’d turn things around. It may take us a lot longer than anyone would like, certainly a lot longer than we would have wanted but that’s the situation you find yourself in when you are at the back of the grid. To try and turn a Formula 1® team around isn’t the work of a moment,” Williams said.
“We made assurance and promises that we would deliver and improve performance this year and I’m so happy that we have been able to do that,” she continued.
As the Racing Point saga continues to play out with multiple teams including Williams protesting the recent penalty, Williams said it is hard for fans to understand.
“I think it’s quite confusing for fans that we’ve got a sporting regulation that’s in breach, but not a technical, so therefore these brake ducts can continue to be put into use but they are performance related parts,” Williams said.
“It’s something that the FIA, we very much hope and we know that they will be, looking into and that they will be making the right decision moving forward.”
