This will be a common theme in the new cars from the smaller F1 teams (and some large ones too) as we are entering the last year of this formula and resources are already being conserved for the new formula in 2014. Design features which will pass through to the new formula's tech rules will be given development priority.

In my opinion, Crash.net made an editing mistake on the headline: it should read: Williams: Bottas a new development on 2012. Good luck to Williams bcs they will need it.

Political reasons promoted Bottas to the race seat but there is no way a rookie can perform better than a good driver would do in a second season with the team. The big difference is that Bottas won't lose any FP1, unlike Senna, so maybe he can do better than Senna did last year. However, I don't believe he will do better than Senna would do in a second year.
