This week’s episode of The Race F1 Tech Show shines a light on Williams – a team that was once a perennial Formula 1 championship winner but has spent the past decade struggling for competitiveness at the wrong end of the grid.

Host Edd Straw is joined by Gary Anderson, who explains where Williams has gone wrong in recent times and details the steps he thinks it can take to move back towards the front, taking into account the limitations of the F1 cost cap.

With reports surfacing that Bridgestone may be interested in dislodging Pirelli as the control tyre supplier, Gary also shares his thoughts on that head-to-head and F1’s current tyre situation.

And finally, Gary wades through a host of fantastic questions from listeners, ranging from how well a team might do if it focused all of its efforts on building a car for one specific circuit, to whether F1 would have a more competitive fight at the front without the cost cap in place.
