Williams look raring to go for the 2020 season as their FW43’s engine has been fired up ahead of its launch on February 17 – a stark contrast to 2019 when their FW42 was behind schedule.

    Last season Williams not only missed the first two days of pre-season testing in Barcelona, but also missed their own shakedown date as the new car simply wasn't ready. The FW42 was only fired up for the first time a day before testing was due to start.

    Once it did get on track the car lacked pace and after a last-place finish in the 2019 table when they scored just one point, Sir Frank's team will be hoping for a much improved season this year.

    In an effort to lift themselves off the bottom of the grid the team have made a number of personnel changes for 2020, including the appointments of David Worner from Red Bull and Jonathan Carter from Renault in order to bolster the design department – but the Chief Technical Officer role remains unfilled after Paddy Lowe left last year.

    With young guns George Russell and Nicholas Latifi at the wheel this season – and Jack Aitken recently signed as a reserve – the future is looking a little brighter for the Grove squad.
