Williams have been dealt with a massive blow ahead of the 2019 season. They haven’t been able to put their car on track for winter testing today and now a further worrying update has been provided by the team.
Williams have confirmed that they would be missing the second day of testing too.
“It is looking more likely than not that we will now not be in a position to run on track until Wednesday at the earliest. This is obviously extremely disappointing, but it is unfortunately the situation we are in. We will be getting the FW42 on track as soon as we are able.” Claire Williams said.

Williams need to get their act together by Wednesday, so as to get important data ahead of the first Grand Prix in Melbourne.
Robert Kubica and George Russell will be hoping that the plan for Wednesday goes through as they too would be wanting to get some important laps under their belt before the first grand prix.
In the morning session in testing today, Ferrari have put on a strong show, with Vettel putting in the highest number of laps and securing the best time today.
