After lodging its worst-ever Formula 1 points haul in 2019, Williams enters the new decade with renewed focus and vigour. Additions to the technical team unite with a tweaked driver line-up for 2020, and the new Aquafresh livery adorning the FW43 certainly gives the team a fresher outlook.
This year should hopefully have none of the negative spirals surrounding the team that embroiled its pre-season last year. The car is on time, there have been no acrimonious departures of senior technical staff from the team, and the latter-season infighting between Williams and Robert Kubica is now off the menu.
All things point to Williams getting a free run at turning around its form. One thing Williams has not been tempted to do is throw the baby out with the bathwater. The FW43 is, for all intents and purposes, an evolution of the FW42 - and the team spoke openly about a two-year development cycle last year.
