Williams reveals test schedule

Williams has confirmed that it will run George Russell and Robert Kubica for the Abu Dhabi Pirelli tyre test which will take place over two days at the Yas Marina circuit during the week following the Grand Prix.

George and Robert will share driving responsibilities, with the young Briton getting his first laps as a Williams driver in the morning of day one before handing over to Robert for the afternoon session. That order will be reversed for day two with Robert running in the morning before George concludes day two of the test.

The test is aimed at evaluating 2019 candidate tyres on behalf of Pirelli.

Williams is excited to have this opportunity to assess the new tyres and for 2019 confirmed drivers, George and Robert to get behind the wheel of the FW41 to support the development going into next season.
