Williams having 'big problems' with car behaviour

George Russell confesses that he and team-mate Robert Kubica are having “big problems” dealing with the consistency of their new Williams FW42, but remains hopeful they can improve on their pace which he describes as like standing still when being overtaken.

The 2019 F1 season hasn’t been rewarding for Williams so far, as both Russell and Kubica have finished in the last two positions in every race among the drivers who did not retire. This comes after an embarrassing pre-season in which the car was late in arriving in Barcelona.

The Brit says they are both struggling to get to grips with the car.

“Right now, Robert and I are having big problems with how the car behaves at the corner entry and in the middle of the curve compared to the exit,” he told Motorsport-Total.com.

“It’s very different in every area, which makes driving so difficult.

“It’s mostly aero, but also a bit mechanical, I’d say 75 too 25.

“There will be upgrades, just like any team. It’s not like we have something special”.

When asked what it was like competing against much faster cars, Russell claims that it is like he is stationary as his competitors move past.

“I wasn’t even looking, to be honest,” he continued.

“The pace differential is so large that they come and go like I’m stood still, really. It’s not really a surprise, we know what our pace is and my job is to make the most of that.”

Williams are the only F1 team yet to score a point in the constructor’s championship this season.
