AT&T Williams: the new FW30The AT&T Williams team unveiled this morning their new single-seater, the FW30, at Valencia’s Circuit where most of F1 teams are participating in a test session. Unfortunately, due to the adverse weather conditions, mainly fog, the FW30 completed only one installation lap. Williams’ German test driver, Nico Hulkenberg, had the honor to complete the first run with the new car. As soon as Valencia’s Circuit is re-opened, the FW30 will continue with its first run.
