Following their immensely strong start to the 2012 Formula 1 season, which included Pastor Maldonado’s victory in Barcelona, Williams head to Hungary with a fight on their hands. Force India now sits just one point behind in the championship.
At Hockenheim last Sunday, Williams failed to score whereas Force India picked up two points for Nico Hülkenberg’s ninth place. The battle is now raging and tensions are building for seventh position in the Constructors’ Championship.
“Logistics of the back-to-back races are always a bit more difficult, with less turnaround between the events and therefore less time to react to any issues,” explains Mark Gillan, Williams’ Chief Operations Engineer.
“The competition is so tight at the moment that one must ensure that you extract the maximum performance from the car - there is no room for errors.”
In the drivers’ standings at the halfway point of the campaign, Maldonado sits 11th with 29 points whereas team-mate Bruno Senna is 16th with 18 points.
