Berger Plays Down Williams Chances for 2002

Tuesday November 27th, 2001

The Williams team do not target to fight for the World Championship in 2002, according to BMW boss and former Grand Prix driver Gerhard Berger.

The Grove-based team, in only their second year of partnership with German engine supplier BMW, finished in third place in this year's Constructors' Championship after scoring four victories with their drivers Ralf Schumacher and Juan Pablo Montoya.

But despite their impressive season in 2001, Berger is not expecting they will be able to fight for the title next year.

"Next year it is our target to make another step forward, i.e. to fight for second place," Berger told the SID news agency. "Perhaps the following year we can challenge for the World Championship."

Williams finished behind McLaren and Ferrari in this year's Championship, with the Italian team clinching their third consecutive Constructors' crown after nine wins from World Champion Michael Schumacher.
