The Williams FW42 finally made it to Barcelona, the team burning the midnight oil to get their 2019 Formula 1 car out on track two and a half days late with rookie George Russell tasked to begin testing for the team in crisis.
The team raced against time to get their car ready, first missing the scheduled shakedown and the first two days in Spain.
It was a big blow for Robert Kubica’s comeback as well as rookie George Russell who really need as much seat time as possible, but were forced to watch from the sidelines as their rivals pounded the tarmac.
Moving forward, the team announced the line-up for the remaining day and a half.
- Wednesday 20 February: George Russell
- Thursday 21 February: Robert Kubica (AM), George Russell (PM)
