Williams will test a series of updates for the FW33 during practice for the Canadian Grand Prix.

Technical director Sam Michael said: “We will have a new front wing, brake ducts, barge boards and modified diffuser to test during practice, as well as the obligatory new rear wing for the lower drag level required in Canada”.

He expects an exciting race at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve:

“With the new tyres and DRS on two straights, I think this year?s race will be no exception.

“Set-up is geared towards aero efficiency on the straights and maximising traction out of the slow speed corners”.

Pastor Maldonado is bracing himself for a difficult weekend on a track he has no prior experience of:

“This race will be more difficult for me, especially at the start of the weekend, as I don?t know the circuit.

“The grip level will improve over the three days and so the track will change between the sessions. I will need to adapt myself day by day as it is important to be fully ready in time for qualifying on Saturday.”
