Bottas well prepared to add to 2013 push, says Williams

“The FW34 was a strong car and, on the whole, we feel that we should have done better with the equipment we had,” Williams insisted, “Our long run pace was consistently strong and, whilst we need to improve on our qualifying pace, at certain tracks we did manage to give the top teams a run for their money over a single lap.

“Of course, the win in Spain was memorable and showed that we can produce race winning cars. The rate of progression we have shown over 2011 has been very encouraging and I'm confident that with the people we have in place, 2013 will see us move further up the grid.

“Making predictions is always dangerous, particularly given the unpredictable nature of the 2012 season, but, nevertheless, we will be looking to build on 2012 and produce a car that can consistently finish in the points at a wide range of circuits and challenge for podiums as well.”

Williams used Senna's money to train VB but too bad for Williams, VB is not going to deliver what they're expecting. Combine with the inconsistent PM one time wonder lucky podium and the future does not look promising. People forget that going to the fifth race, Senna had more points than PM. That one time lucky podium finish for Maldonado was the only reason PM stay ahead of Senna in points. Williams starting to look like the british F1 theater version of the infamous Italian comedy of team orders.
