What about Force India?They were openly saying they were struggling with the weight of the halo so maybe they've now gone too light and not strong enough so are now struggling to find that middle ground?
all crashtests done said in interview by Otmar Szafnauer of FI on 28.01.

as I read the motorsport.it article on Williams, they alledgedly changed the way of manufacturing the car (monocoque?)... so it might be related to that, ( beeing so late and only able to rcentrly pass the tests).. I think weightsaving is the driver there.
Cheers. Good to hear they've both passed at least.

And Red Bull next Monday - 19th.

For some reason it won't let me edit the original post.... Will keep trying.
In 2007 I had the chance to go to a meet-and-greet with an F1 test driver. I decided not to as I didn't think he'd even amount to much...he was the BMW Sauber test driver and his name was Sebastian Vettel...
