Formula One: Williams last out with new car but aiming high


BARCELONA (REUTERS) - Former champions Williams hoped the last could be first again after finally unveiling their 2013 Formula One car on Tuesday at the Barcelona circuit where they were winners last year.

The last of the 11 teams to show off their new car, Williams hoped the FW35 would be an improvement on the FW34 that took Venezuelan Pastor Maldonado to their first victory in nearly eight years last May.

"Given the rule stability over the winter, I'm pleased with the gains that we've been able to make with this car," said technical director Mike Coughlan in a statement for the rollout at the Circuit de Catalunya.

"It's a better, more refined Formula One car than the FW34."
