Williams-BMW contract "in a month or two"

Sir Frank Williams says that he is confident that there will soon be a new deal between Williams and BMW despite the fact that the team is currently not very competitive.

"They are not very happy," said Williams, "but they also recognise that what you see in testing is not necessarily what you will see in the racing. We had a long meeting yesterday with BMW about a contract and made a lot of progress. We are optimistic that there will be a contract in a month or two."
