Williams looking forward to Silverstone

FRANK WILLIAMS is looking forward to taking his Williams team back to Silverstone - the scene of their first ever victory.

Williams has high hopes that his current drivers Ralf Schumacher and Juan Pablo Montoya can challenge for honors at this weekend's British Grand Prix.

"We have had great times and we've normally arrived there," Williams said. "The race is a bit special because we won our first race there as well."

Williams currently lie third in the constructors' championship after two Grand Prix victories for Schumacher and some encouraging performances for Montoya and they will be hoping to leapfrog McLaren into second place this weekend.

"I think generally we feel we go there on an equal with everybody else, but in truth we will still be playing a little bit of catch up." added Williams.

Williams are currently on 43 championship points, just 13 points adrift of McLaren who are in second behind Ferrari.
