Claire Williams, deputy team principal of Williams, has confessed that there is “almost a sense of disappointment” amongst the team after they failed to better their 2014 performance.
The Grove outfit finished third in the Constructors’ Championship last year and matched that position this year. Whilst they emerged ahead of Red Bull in 2015, they weren’t a match for a resurgent Ferrari.
Meanwhile the team scored just four podium finishes, compared to nine in 2014.
Although the team has come along way compared to 2013, when the team finished ninth with just five points, Williams admitted there is still a lot of room for improvement.
“I think everyone knows that there is almost a sense of disappointment that we’re third at Williams,” she said. “We want to be winning races and fighting for that world championship.
“We’ve worked hard over the past two years in order to turn this team around. We’ve made a lot of changes within the team and fortunately a lot of those changes are paying off.
“We’ve made some mistakes this year that have been fairly visible for people to see and we need to improve upon our operations to make sure we don’t make those mistakes next year and we can continue to improve in 2016.”
