Williams 'back on track'

Williams are confident their recent slump is a thing of the past after a solid qualifying performance in India...

Williams are confident their recent slump is a thing of the past after a solid qualifying performance in India.


Pastor Maldonado made his way into the top ten in Saturday's qualifying and will line-up ninth on Sunday's Indian GP grid while his team-mate Bruno Senna was 13th.

It was a marked improvement on the previous two races where Williams failed to get either driver into the top ten.

"We're back on track, but we've still got a lot to do," chief operations engineer Mark Gillan told Autosport.

"Sometimes you've got to come up against problems and it has been a good weekend for us.

"We've understood a lot this weekend and it has been a late couple of nights in terms of data analysis, but you can see from the pace of the car [that progress has been made]."

The team is now looking for an improved performance and points in Sunday's race having missed out in Korea.

"We came here knowing that we had a lot to do off the back of the disappointing Korea race, which was the first race, if you looked at all of the sessions, where nothing stood out.

"We did a lot of ground work at the factory and came here with a very detailed run programme for Friday. We've managed to get on top of a number of the issues."
