The Grove-based team is the backbone of the Formula One lattice. It has nine Constructors’ Championships and seven Drivers’ Championships to their name.
Furthermore, in spite of advancing back towards the business end of the grid come 2014 under the new guidelines, a relentless decay followed before the group hit absolute bottom in 2018 and stayed there in 2019.
In the wake of showing up later than expected to pre-season testing, Williams F1 would spend last season well uncontrolled at the rear of the grid with Robert Kubica getting their solitary point of the season, yet barely in typical conditions with that point coming at a turbulent German Grand Prix and after penalties to others.
Brawn concedes that the circumstance is worrisome. He trusts that the updated prize cash appropriation in the arrangement from 2021 will enable Williams F1 to recuperate.
“We are very concerned [about Williams],” Brawn said.
“Williams have had a couple of very hard years. They cannot go on like this because they risk losing sponsors and drivers.
“I hope the new distribution of prize money will help them because Williams is part of the history of F1.”
Brawn believes the motor increases made by Honda make Red Bull a genuine risk to Mercedes’ six-year stronghold on the game.
“Honda have done an incredible job in the last 12 to 18 months,” he added.
“The engine has improved a lot and I believe if they continue this way in 2020 then Red Bull will be really hard to beat. Ferrari last year had a lot of ups and downs.
“And then there is McLaren that also improved a lot, but I don’t think they will be able to fight for the title.”
Williams F1-One of the best teams in the history of the game is currently struggling. Last year, the squad missed the first two and a half days of running in Barcelona after production delays blighted their troubled 2019 car.
Claire Williams says that they have taken measures to prevent last year’s mistakes. She believes that the team is capable of showcasing the car on 19th February for the 1st day of testing. The FW43 will be unveiled on February 17 at 0800 GMT.
