Valtteri Bottas expects the Monaco Grand Prix to be the toughest challenge of his Formula 1 rookie season with Williams. The Finn, who has made an impressive start to his F1 career despite failing to score points in an uncompetitive Williams, has never raced in Monaco. GP3 did not run in Monaco when Bottas won the championship in 2011 and he did not drive on Friday morning last year when he was reserve driver for Williams

Nuno Moreira took full advantage of a faltering return to the series for ex-champion Gernot Fritsche to extend his lead at the Oulton Park circuit in England. A superb 221 point haul bolstered his advantage over Luca Zanetti to 52 points while several drivers found Turn One (Old Hall) of this classic race course to have race-ending tendencies. Fritsche wasn’t one of those, however as he waited until Knickerbrook to crash out after a misjudgement with an other driver. Kevin Law was another star of the walking moving up seven places to 4th overall with an excellent 187 point haul, while Michel Dudognon’s 167 gained him 10 places to move inside the top 10 to 8th overall. Ramon Sprecher was unfortunate to fall the other way, despite a solid 109 [...]

Honda’s return to Formula 1 , Mercedes’ push to find another customer, plus Renault’s desire to supply fewer teams , has opened the way for plenty of changes over the next few years. There is now even the prospect of a renewal of some iconic F1 partnerships from the past, with both Lotus and Williams leading contenders to land Honda deals

Charles Pic – 17th: “I’m really happy with today’s performance. Finishing 17th doesn’t really tell the whole story as we ended the race right behind one of the Williams cars which shows that we’ve made some good progress this weekend. The blue flags didn’t help as without them I’d have had a much better chance of overtaking him, but it was still good that I could attack him in the last few laps.

Valtteri Bottas declared that his upgraded Williams felt the best the car had all year in Friday practice for the Spanish Grand Prix, but still was unsure if the performance gain would be enough. After failing to score a point in the opening four races, Williams has brought a major development package to Barcelona.

Pastor Maldonado insists that Williams has a ‘plan B’ should the major upgrade package it will trial in Friday practice for the Spanish Grand Prix not perform as expected. Williams has endured a poor start to the 2013 Formula 1 season and has yet to score a point heading into a race that it won last year . But despite being confident that the new parts, which Williams has successfully tested during two days of straightline running at the Idiada facility in Spain since the Bahrain Grand Prix, will work, Maldonado does not see this upgrade as make or break for his campaign
