Williams May Never Race It’s KERS System
Williams, the team based in Grove Oxfrodshire may well never use their Kinetic Energy Recovery system, having not brought it onto the FW31 for 2009 and with the teams unilaterally deciding not to use it in 2010 the system may never feature.
The reason it is more notable for Williams, than say other teams that have not used the system like Brawn, Red Bull and Force India is because after purchasing an energy recovery company, they set about creating a different system to all the other teams harnessing power from the flywheel of the engine.
But, the owner of the team Sir Frank Williams claims that all is not lost with the system; “[KERS] has very useful and truly interesting commercial applications.”
“It’s got its own life in that direction,” he is quoted as saying by Reuters.
