Although Force India beat them to fourth place by more than 100 points, Williams reckon the gap between the two teams was “not much.”
Force India led Formula 1’s midfield battle throughout the 2017 championship, and wrapped up P4 for the second year running.
It was a good showing from the team, who bagged 187 points to beat Williams by 104.
But despite the points hinting an empathetic loss to Force Indian, Williams chief technical officer Paddy Lowe insists the gap out on track wasn’t at big as that in the points.
“At some point attention had to turn to next season’s car and trying to make a big step there,” Lowe told Racer.
