Williams car set to arrive in Barcelona on Wednesday morning

CIRCUIT DE BARCELONA-CATALUNYA, SPAIN - FEBRUARY 18: Williams Racing trucks and engineers rooms

There’s some good news, at last, on the horizon for Williams with the team’s car set to fly overnight to arrive in Barcelona in the early hours of Wednesday morning, having missed the start of pre-season testing…

Delays in Williams' production schedule meant the FW42 wasn’t ready for the team's planned shakedown on Saturday nor the opening two days of running in Spain.

They only fired up their car on Sunday night, but after significant work behind the scenes, the new machine looks set to leave Grove later today, bound for Barcelona.

ANALYSIS: Williams: Why is their car late to F1 testing?

There will still be a lot of work to do before the car is ready to go, so Williams believe it is “unlikely” they will be out on track on Wednesday until after lunch.

Williams said in a statement: “Out car looking likely to arrive at the circuit between 4-5am tomorrow (Wednesday) morning.

“Obviously there will still be a fair amount to do but we will be working as fast as we can. Unlikely to run before lunch though.”
