Williams has its sights set on sixth place in the constructors' championship after closing to within two points of Force India at Suzuka.

A double retirement for Force India in Japan coupled with ninth for Rubens Barrichello means Williams has closed the gap on its Silverstone-based rival heading to Korea next weekend and technical director Sam Michael insisted that the aim now was to keep the pressure on heading into the final three races of the year.

"It's always important to finish as high as possible in the Constructors' Championship because it determines the income you receive from FOM for the following season," he said. "Sixth position is therefore what we are aiming to achieve in the final rounds.

"We have no further developments planned for the FW32 for the remainder of the season."

Williams had taken its final upgrade package of the year to Suzuka, with Michael happy with the way it had performed on the two cars.

"We ran new front and rear brake ducts on the FW32s in Suzuka," he said. "These items were the last of our upgrade components that we will deliver this season. The new parts worked well so we ran them on both cars for the race."
