I'm adamantly opposed to chassis sharing - Williams

By on

Frank Williams has opposed the potential use of customer cars for the upcoming season. The AT&T Williams Team boss declared he'll seek arbitration if the Concorde agreement, which runs till the end of 2007, will be broken by Super Aguri and Toro Rosso.

Frank Williams told the Guardian: "I am adamantly opposed to chassis sharing, and we at Williams do not believe it is legal under the current rules. We are what you might call a traditionalist racing team, which believes that we are out there competing for two world championships - one for the best driver in the world, and one for the constructor who builds the best car in the world. As far as I'm concerned, it is absolutely in the regulations in black and white that every team must make its own chassis."

Both Super Aguri and Toro Rosso would, according to speculations, start the 2007 F1 season with customer cars. Super Aguri would use Honda's 2006 challenger, the RA106, and Toro Rosso would appear in Red Bull's RB2. The debat about the customer chassis' has been going on for a while and most of the teams have said to take further steps if necessary.
