Williams and Pastor Maldonado managed to complete 63 laps of Mugello on Thursday, a total some way below their expectancy due to an electrical problem which hindered proceedings during the morning session.
“We had a disappointing start to this morning's session with an electrical problem that necessitated stripping the car, thus incurring a large loss in track time,” explained Chief Operations Engineer Mark Gillan.
“The mechanics worked hard to get the car back out on-track in the early afternoon. We modified the run plan accordingly and successfully completed a number of aerodynamic and systems tests.”
Despite the frustration, Maldonado remains upbeat.
“We lost some time this morning but we had a good afternoon,” said the Venezuelan. “The track is amazing, so it was good to get a few runs completed this afternoon. We gathered a lot of data and I feel positive heading into the next race.”
Following a double points finish in China but double retirement in Bahrain, Williams sits seventh in the championship heading to Barcelona next week.
