2011 Williams FW33 Maldonado

The FW33 was designed by Sam Michael (Technical Director), Ed Wood (Chief Designer) and Jon Tomlinson (Chief Aerodynamicist), and was powered by Cosworth CA2011k V8 engine with Williams Hybrid Power (WHP) KERS system. The was car driven by Brazilian veteran Rubens Barrichello and 2010 GP2 Series champion and rookie driver Pastor Maldonado. Maldonado was fast and promising driver and, what was not less important, was backed by the sponsorship money from PDVSA, Petroleos de Venezuela oil company. Despite new car, more money and interesting driver’s line-up, Williams mostly struggled in the back of the grid. Maldonado scored the only point in the 2011 season for 10th place in Belgian GP, and finished nineteenth in the Drivers’ Championship. Barichello finished twice in 9th place, in Monaco and Montreal.
