Williams cancels shakedown to prepare FW42 for testing

Williams cancels shakedown to prepare FW42 for testing

However, with the auto build still ongoing, deputy team principal Claire Williams has confirmed that shakedown will now not take place. Renault was due to carry out a shakedown on the same day as Williams - at the same venue - but Abiteboul says that is now in jeopardy.

Williams aren't the only team up against it, ahead of a season that starts earlier and features aerodynamic rule changes.

"As anyone would expect, we have had an extremely aggressive engineering programme over the winter", deputy team principal Claire Williams is quoted as saying.

At the launch of its new auto, the R.S.19, on Wednesday, Renault team boss Cyril Abiteboul said: "I think we've maybe gone a bit over the red line, that's why really my thoughts are already with production who are massively working to get the parts out of the door for us to be ready and testing as we speak".

Johnson wins, Byron gets pole in Daytona
Busch said team owner Chip Ganassi complained to NASCAR about Johnson driving below the double-yellow line to make the move. Rain threatened the race throughout the day, and caused the race to be red-flagged three times throughout the afternoon.

Williams suffered one of their bleakest seasons last year, finishing last in the constructors' championship, but have undergone a year-long inquest to find solutions to the problems that left them at the back of the grid.

Williams presented its new title sponsor and livery in an event at its factory on Monday.

Only a day after Renault boss, Cyril Abiteboul, admitted that his team will nearly certainly have to cancel a planned shakedown (filming day) this weekend in order that its 2019 contender is ready for the start of pre-season testing on Monday, Williams has announced that it has had to cancel its shakedown.
