Stable Platform

Last year, it was a case of all change at Williams. The biggest variation was the switch from Toyota to Cosworth engines, and much of pre-season testing was dedicated to proving an engine that had not been in Fi since '06 and working on areas that most teams took for granted. This year, there are no such diversions.

Michael: "Going into the second

Cosworth deal enters year two year with Cosworth makes a big difference to car packaging and means that you can refine things a lot more. You don't have to spend a lot of time and resources on new designs. Also, with double diffusers banned as far back as December '09 allowed us to trigger our aero programme early. That defined the mechanical side of the rear end. The earlier you can do that, the better, especially if you have limited resources."
