Claire Williams is confident that Williams' efforts to turn this season around are not compromising next year's car.
With just one point in the first half of this season, the Williams F1 team is determined to salvage something from arguably their worst campaign ever.
As such the team is still throwing resources behind this year's car, which Williams is adamant will not hurt next year's development.
"No, it's bubbling along," the deputy team principal told Autosport
"We're lucky at Williams we have 550 people working for us and some of he best resources in the paddock.
"That supports us when we are having some problems with the car that we need to keep focusing on so we can improve it.
"We can't just turn round and say we aren't going to continue developing that car for the next season; we have to make sure that we are clever in the allocation of our resources so that we can maintain both projects.
"The 2014 work is going on behind the scenes and there are no concerns about this."
Williams will also change engine suppliers next season, swapping from Renault to Mercedes which Williams believes is the right move for her team.
"We have had a great relationship with Renault in the past two seasons that they have been our engine partner, and prior to that. Everyone knows our history with them.
"But we had to make a decision for 2014 and in isolation we decided that the Mercedes engine and that relationship was where we wanted to be going into 2014.
"Time moves quickly in this sport and you never know what can happen down the line so the relationship with Renault will always remain amicable. But our relationship with Mercedes will be hugely important for us.
"Looking at where Mercedes are at the moment, they will have a really competitive package and we are really looking forward to working with them."
