Williams headed into the new Formula 1 season expecting to be at the back, but we explain why its start to 2023 has been better than anticipated in the latest edition of The Race F1 Podcast.
With a point in the Bahrain Grand Prix and the pace to have scored in Saudi Arabia had things not gone against it, Williams has been an effective force in F1’s lower midfield so far.
Mark Hughes and Scott Mitchell-Malm join Edd Straw to evaluate where Williams really stacks up performance wise and the strengths and weaknesses of its car.
We also look at the start James Vowles has made as team principal and the big decisions he faces in the near future.
The positive start made by Logan Sargeant, and nearest rival AlphaTauri’s struggles, are also delved into.
