Williams has confirmed that it will take its revised front wing to the Canadian Grand Prix having been forced to revert to an older version for the Turkish event in Istanbul.

The team was forced to use the older wing due to the damage it sustained in the Monaco Grand Prix, when Rubens Barrichello and Nico Hulkenberg both went off into the barriers.

While the older-spec wing cost the team on track in Istanbul, technical director Sam Michael confirmed that the revised part will be back on the car in Montreal along with a range of other upgrades.

"Running the old front wing cost us approximately one tenth per lap, but it worked well in the high speed corners," he said. "We will have the next evolution of the front wing on both cars in Montreal next week.

"We will have some more aero parts for the cars which should improve our performance, as well as a couple of mechanical upgrades. We will also have the medium drag rear wings specific to this race."

Williams will investigate the clutches from both of its car after an issue saw Barrichello lose places at the start.
