Brawn: 'Fingers crossed' Williams come out of slump
Formula 1 managing director of motorsport Ross Brawn says he has his “fingers crossed” that Williams can emerge from the current down period in the team’s history, but has warned that it needs to happen soon.
In both 2018 and 2019 Williams finished last in the constructors’ championship, with just one solitary point being accumulated last season as Robert Kubica and rookie driver George Russell were totally unable to compete in the drastically inferior car.
They do, however, remain one of the sport’s linchpins and have won the second-most world titles behind Ferrari - even if the last victory came more than two decades ago.
Brawn thinks the upcoming regulation changes will aid any recovery from the team, but reckons it must happen soon or they risk being dropped from F1 altogether.
