Last and by some margin among the teams contesting the 2018 Formula 1 season, the once-heralded Williams outfit hopes its current woes will lead to a much stronger future.
There was nowhere for Williams to hide in 2018. Not only did the team finish 10th and last in the world championship, but it did so by a significant margin. Even with its endless grid penalties, ninth-placed Toro Rosso scored nearly five times as many points as Williams did.
The days of Williams challenging for podiums in the early years of Formula 1's hybrid era suddenly seem like a long time ago, and having hit rock bottom, the only way forward is surely through change. That's easy to say, but making it happen will be difficult.
