Williams is pinning its hopes of scoring its first points since the Canadian Grand Prix on a new aerodynamic package that it is introducing in Belgium this weekend.
Neither Rubens Barrichello nor Pastor Maldonado have finished in the top 10 since the Montreal event in June, with the team currently ninth place in the constructors' championship. Despite the disappointing results, Barrichello is hopeful that improvements coming for Spa-Francorchamps could give Williams a chance of turning its fortunes around.
"I love Spa-Francorchamps; the track is very special," said the Brazilian. "We are going to have a new aero package for this race that I hope will give us a better chance to fight for points. It is a real drivers' circuit with no time to breathe during a lap."
Speaking about the planned updates, which will include low-drag aerodynamic configurations because of the Spa layout, Williams technical director Sam Michael said: "We will bring new rear wings which feature a different drag level and some diffuser modifications to evaluate during practice."
