Williams to launch on January 25
THE BMW Williams team is to unveil its new FW24 on January 25 at Silverstone. This is extremely bad news for Sauber which is planning to launch its C21 in Zurich on the same day. The majority of the Formula 1 press corps are now expected to give Zurich a miss and go instead to Northamptonshire as Williams is expected to be challenging for the World Championship this year while Sauber will be fighting for fourth place.
The Renault team is expected to launch its challenger in Paris that weekend.
