Post Busy days for the BMW WilliamsF1 Team

Just one week after the French Grand Prix, the teams head to Silverstone for the British Grand Prix, the next round of the 2004 Formula One World Championship.

The 5.141 kilometre Silverstone Circuit is special for the BMW WilliamsF1 Team for more than just one reason. For the Anglo-German partnership, the British Grand Prix is one of its home races, indeed, the circuit is situated only a short distance away from the WilliamsF1 factory at Grove.

Furthermore, WilliamsF1 celebrated its maiden Grand Prix victory at Silverstone on 14th July 1979 when Clay Regazzoni crossed the line first, twenty-five years ago. Nearly 18 years later Jacques Villeneuve made it 100 Grand Prix wins for WilliamsF1, again at Silverstone. WilliamsF1 has won a total of eight times on home soil.

Last year the BMW WilliamsF1 Team travelled to Silverstone on the back of double one-two victory for Ralf Schumacher and Juan Pablo Montoya at the Nürburgring and at Magny-Cours. The 2003 British Grand Prix, however, didn’t go as planned for Ralf who had won the previous two races.

The German was to start from the second row of the grid, finishing the race in ninth position. For Juan Pablo things went better. Having qualified in seventh position, the Colombian made his way up through the field and finished second after 60 laps.

After the difficult French Grand Prix, in which Juan Pablo was able to take a sole Championship point, the BMW WilliamsF1 Team is determined to exploit the full potential of the modified WilliamsF1 BMW FW26. It has not yet been decided who will replace Ralf Schumacher and race alongside Juan Pablo in the second FW26 at Silverstone.
