January 18th, 2013 (F1plus Team).- It is not the first time a Formula 1 team is internally forced to skip a testing session, specially the first one of the pre-season, in this occasion it was the turn for Williams, which will not have the FW35 ready on time.

The team has announced that the FW35 will be unveiled at Barcelona on 19 February, the opening day of test two.

For the first test at Jerez on 5-8 February, Williams will run an updated version of its 2012 car.

"We will be running the FW34 (with 2013 livery) in Jerez to test a number of key development parts in preparation for the launch of the FW35," said a team statement.

The team is looking for consistency, an element that was partially present in 2012. One of its drivers, Pastor Maldonado, was able to obtain a victory in Barcelona, but at times the FW34 seemed to underperform.

Along with the Venezuelan, will Valttery Bottas, who got promoted (and replaced Bruno Senna) to the first team after spending 2012 as test driver.
