“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.”
