Yes lets hope that the team can find some pace from the new parts.

Well FP1 and Russell close to the cars in front running with the updates. Positive steps forward, if small.

See kubica not running the updates this time. FP2 will be more telling I guess.

Yes he was. At the first run not, but at the second part of Fp1 he had them.

Not all of them, the rear wing was added at the last race pace stint

I hope that the progres will visible tomorrow and on sunday, today was seems to be a positive day. In FP1, Russell did his best time on lap 13 of a 14lap stint. Too bad that the rain interupted FP2 that we dont have a clearer picture if this is progres or not, will just have to wait and see.

He too said that on the first run of Fp2 he was very fast (I guess this was before Albon's crash), but they tried something on the setup and the car wasn't as good after the red flag.

I don't think we are that much close to the competition but this friday gave me hope that there's some potential in that package.It only needs more time and hopefully we can get closer after the summer break.

I read the same story and it was a mix of been positive mixed with caution. But the wet weather setup certainly sounds like they have made big steps forward in terms of seconds improvement.

I would love to know what they tweaked to make such a big change. Russell said it gave them so much more overall grip.

I hope that they can turn this into a dry weather setup change that also finds time.

In fact, updates that work is definitely progress. To me, it all seems that the problems with the tunnel were never really identified or corrected until Paddy came along.

Pat Symonds is on record as saying that one year they spent most of the budget on a new front wing which made no difference whatsoever. And Wurz said they had experienced an aero stall before, although nothing like that which plagued the De Beer concept. Probably because the low downforce design didn't really trouble the aero.

This time last year, at the post-Hungary GP test days, Robert was doing endless one lap at a time testing with buckets of flo-viz. Paddy said that when they started looking into the tunnel they found a can of worms. So in fact, we have moved along quite well.

It does seem to me that Paddy and de Beer were much maligned.

We've improved massively. We're on par with Toro Rosso now , faster than Haas and Alfa, and only half a second off Renault on race pace. wow. (Sm152)

Francesc 03 August, 2019 10:47
On quali pace we lack a bit more than on race pace. Maybe it's fuel related.

Just watching FP3, Karun reporting that he had spoken to someone at Williams (I think he said MIke) and they feel they have now got the simulator etc all hooked up now and seeing the benefits on the track. They couldn't optimise the new parts at Germany, but are starting to now.

it cannot rain forever...

Re: Hungarian GP 2019 (Practice, Qualifying and Race)
Gunk 03 August, 2019 11:45
Encouraging . . . still would prefer some rain though ... might even get some more points in a lottery )

Mehryar 03 August, 2019 12:51
We should compare our best laptime with the best if Alfa or RACING Point but so far it looks like a good inprovement.
There's more testing on the way so hopefully we can get an exciting second half of the season
