The Williams team arrived at Monaco with further updates to its Cosworth-powered FW32 cars, the most noticeable being a new rear-wing configuration used by Rubens Barrichello in the opening practice session – his team-mate Nico Hülkenberg was allowed to debut the new front wing used by Rubens in the last round at Spain.
Both drivers were positive after the opening day’s running, which saw them post mid-field times; Hülkenberg improved considerably in the second session and went quicker than Barrichello.
"The team has brought some new parts for the car to Monaco," said Barrichello, who equalled his late friend, Ayrton Senna’s, championship points tally at the Spanish Grand Prix. "I had the new rear wing assembly this morning; Nico this afternoon. It looks promising and I hope to be a touch more competitive than some previous weekends. I’m looking forward to Saturday."
