Williams: There are some problems with the car

Williams acknowledged that the new vehicle had problems with cornering and balance problems and had to solve these problems to get to the top of the grid.

The Mercedes FW41 is the first vehicle designed by Paddy Lowe from the very beginning and a concept far different from previous vehicles.

However, after failing to get good time tours during the pre-season Barcelona tests, Lowe acknowledged that there are problems to be solved.

"We are experiencing problems with cornering and balance, obviously these problems are always there, but we are living a lot on our current car."

"If we can improve, we can get much better lap times than we have because the car works great at other stages of the bends."

Lowe said the problem did not arise from a single question, and that these problems might be present in a new development process.

"Often such problems arise due to aerodynamic reasons, but the solution from suspension to rubber covers many areas and is always multi-dimensional."

"Both the team's changes on the car, as well as the car itself, have a lot of changes, it can take time to develop and adapt, but we can make progress in the season."

Lowe said he had confidence in the Williams factory and that there was no problem with the wind tunnel and the vehicle interacting with the track, even though he did not admit it was a lot of work to do.

"In fact, Williams's ability to measure aerodynamic performance is the strongest strength, and the technology and people who own it can deliver great results."

"We have a good wind tunnel, I think it's one of the best, as a result we have good tools and we can use them in a useful way."

"There are things that we do well and function well, and on the other we have to focus on those who are not."

"This has always been the case, do you ever see that we did a job very well, no?
