"We know that won't be easy, but we hope this car will take us closer to the leaders than we were in 2010. As a team, we're as ambitious now as we've ever been."

Technical director Sam Michael said: “The design of this year's car has been pretty smooth We've improved our way of working by increasing the communication between the mechanical and aerodynamic departments, and that improved our decision making processes. It allowed us to increase the optimisation time spent on each part of the car."

The team has already promised to bring an aerodynamic upgrade for the FW33 in time for the new season in Bahrain in March.
