BMW Boss Looking for Improvements

Monday June 4th, 2001

BMW motorsport director Mario Theissen is desperate to make the Canadian Grand Prix a turning point in the Williams-BMW team's season.

After showing impressive pace in the early races there was real hope that Williams could become a Championship force to challenge the might of McLaren and Ferrari.

But constant failures from all areas of the team have led to a disastrous run of non finishes and although they remain third best behind the two top teams, they are well aware of the challengers behind them.

"After two accidents that were not our fault, four drivers' mistakes and five technical failures, we hope we can improve our disappointing record," said Theissen. "We want to come back from Canada with some points in the bag.

"In the last few weeks we have been working not only on engine and car performance but also reliability and happily the characteristics of the Canadian track are favourable for our team."
