Having encountered a series of problems with its in-house battery-powered KERS unit during pre-season testing, Williams has confirmed it will run the power-boosting device at the season-opening Australian Grand Prix.
Recent reports had suggested that the Grove squad would compete without the device in the wake of the team experiencing a series of technical issues with the unit during pre-season testing.
But it would seem that whatever the issues were, they have now been resolved. The team made the announcement via its Twitter feed, saying: “Reviewed KERS problem and good news is that we’ll be racing KERS in Melbourne.”
