Lenovo Williams SponsorThe Williams Formula One Team has decided that will not launch officially their 2008 car, the FW30, as they’re focusing on getting back to the front of the F1 grid in 2008. Sam Michael, Williams’ Technical Director, told autosport: “The year (2007) was all about doing what we did…”

“Our target was to restore our respect and make sure our reliability was strong. It wasn’t perfect, as we had four DNFs in the whole year that were caused by mechanical failures, so our target is to get that to zero because that is what you need to win the world championship. There are still things to work on and make better as well as performance. But, having that good strong base of reliability helps you enormously to develop your performance because everyone is focused on making the car go faster. I would say as far as our goals for 2007 are concerned, we achieved them. And our goal is to make the next step up for 2008.”
