TONIO SAYS: It will be an interesting season for us. We are expecting a step forward within the first few months and we are growing day by day. At the moment we have a project of steady improvements throughout the year which will lead us to the first really competitive car in 2009. So this year will be a building year. I feel really good in the team. Of course I would prefer to race but Giancarlo is a friend and I know him and Adrian well and together we have made some big steps forward in the last few months. Giancarlo Fisichella (ITA) / Adrian Sutil (GER) Force India F1 Team Sir Frank’s machines. A former engineering student, Nico is a supremely intelligent human being, both inside the car and out. He’s analytical and intellectual in his understanding of race cars, metronomic in his consistency within them and yet holds the instinctive heart of a true racer. And then there’s Nakajima. Sure he comes with Toyota backing, but there’s a lot more to Kazuki than most pundits have yet given him credit for. Many simply look at his GP2 results and reflect he did nothing special. But they’d be wrong. In the space of half a season, Kazuki redefined race strategy in the series. On used tyres, there wasn’t another driver in the category that could keep up with him. The championship rivals ended up having to change their strategy around when he came in to change tyres. That’s how blisteringly quick he can be. I guess what we’re trying to say is this: the team may like to underplay its winter performance and keep their ambitions in check, and the media may like to try and downplay the strength behind the wheels of the Williams cars … but there is the potential for this team to make big waves this season.
