Dave Robson reveals that Williams does not expect to have engine issues at the upcoming Mexican Grand Prix.
Why it matters: The Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez is 2285 meters above sea level, so low ambient pressure and oxygen level can be a big challenge for power units.
- Robson believes that Williams’ power units will be reliable enough this weekend.
- The Williams head of vehicle performance expects that the team will be able to compete with Alpine and Aston Martin.
What he had to say:
- “No, at the moment that’s not a concern. I don’t think the altitude will be a big problem in terms of the reliability. It’ll be fine, so no, at this stage I don’t think there’s concerns.”
- “I think we ebb and flow a little bit for eighth place with Alfa so I think that is part of it and I think typically we can get pretty close to Alpine and Aston Martin so I think eighth or ninth is probably where the car is.”
