ROKiT Williams Racing Reveals 2020 Challenger
On the eve of pre-season testing for the 2020 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, ROKiT Williams Racing unveiled the FW43 that will be driven by George Russell and new team-mate, Nicholas Latifi.
As an evolution of the FW42 that George piloted over the course of his debut campaign in motorsport’s most prestigious discipline, a large portion of development for the British outfit’s 2020 challenger was carried out last season.
Spending the winter period addressing key areas of weakness, the 2020 campaign is set to be a year of progress for the Grove-based team as Williams – one of Formula 1’s most successful competitors – takes strides to return to competitive status.
Sharing its main concept with the FW42, the FW43 features improvements in cooling efficiency while the squad has targeted key mechanical issues that it encountered in 2019 including the brakes and the overall weight of the car.
George will first take to the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on the morning of February 19, examining the FW43’s one-lap and long-run pace over six days of testing ahead of the official start to the 2020 season on March 15 in Melbourne, Australia.
