Rubens Barrichello looks for more from Williams in 2011
Rubens Barrichello told AUTOSPORT next year's Williams F1 car will be more aggressive as the team aims to move up the grid.
"I'm so positive that I can see the team growing, but I'm possibly not the right person to question," said Barrichello. "I can see only the good signs, and I'm changing the bad signs. I've been pinpointing things exactly with the car, and with that they can help everyone in the team to go forward. Next year's car is definitely in aggressive mode. But it's about whoever makes the tires work better.
"It's a make-or-break type of thing. If you think that the Honda was not a very good car, we had a terrible 2008 season, and whenever they put the slicks on at the end of the year, the car improved itself. It was a car that if it was fighting for sixth position, it was already fighting for fifth. And then they made such an upgrade it went to first.
"The Pirellis could have a fundamental change on the tires aerodynamically, so whatever happens it will help some teams and it won't help some others."
"We do think we're strong, because we've been developing our new KERS," he said. "As a driver we're just concerned that we're going to have to press so many damn buttons that it's going to be tough!"
