I have the same reservations - but I would be delighted to be proved wrong....

F1Guy should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Kubica is doing a development assessment on the chassis. Some changes being evaluated. Don't expect "fast" lap times from Kubica. It's purely a chassis development exercise.

First F1 GP weekend since 2010, and he finishes ahead of the teams lead driver. By 1.2 seconds!

Kubica's session was interrupted with major evaluation changes to his car too. Both drivers fastest times were set when both cars were in same spec's, and both on the same rubber.


Well done Bob!

Good to put him in the car but sadly for Williams he was able to find out that it was truly shocking!


"It was a difficult session for us. It's hard to drive that car, but somehow we managed to do something with it. Balance-wise it's almost impossible to have it worse than we have, but we will work on it. We knew that it will be tough, but what we discovered was shocking. Even though it was that hard I felt pretty comfortable. In some places I was surprised how terrible this car handles."

Stroll did spend much of the session in pitlane, completing only 15 laps, after he spun into the gravel and may have contacted the barriers. Kubica also spun, but fortunately nowhere near barriers. He managed 25 laps. More of a worry is that both Williams pace was diabolical, right at the tail end of the times, and they were one of very few that used the Supersoft rubber. Even RK was still nearly 3.5 secs off the pace.

Even Kubica, despite his best efforts, couldn’t haul them up any higher. That should be a wake up call to Williams

It's a crying shame to see them propping up the grid....

I really don't understand this "discovery", surely this would all have been obvious to blind Freddie from the data traces?

You can't beat the experienced drivers 'feel' for the car though. Time after time we see bits that work in the wind tunnel and data that don't actually work on the car, Williams have been guilty of this many times before and it looks like the updates have made the car worse not better.

Shame to see it and how long CW can keep a brave face on it is anyone's guess.
