Williams again finds themselves at the bottom of F1's pecking order, firmly at the bottom of the standings and lacking the pace to fight for points consistently.
Alex Albon's points finish in Australia provided hope that Williams could battle Aston Martin at the lower end of the midfield this year.
Since then, the AMR22B has taken the Silverstone-based team to the next level, with Sebastian Vettel propelling Aston Martin well clear of Williams in the standings.
As Williams' chances of fighting for anything higher than last place slip away, Head of Vehicle performance Dave Robson has revealed to motorsport.com that the team is preparing an extensive upgrade package:
"Yes, we have decided, and it has now been committed from the wind tunnel. It's now just a challenge to get it manufactured as soon as possible...
The package is on its way. Exactly when we'll deliver it, hopefully, that will become clearer over the next few days.
In terms of short-term and the rest of this season, I think we're committed to a concept that will be slightly different, visibly different, to what you see now."
Despite the promise of a new regulation change, Williams has failed to propel itself from the bottom of the grid, being comprehensively out-developed this season by its closest rivals.
However effective the Williams upgrades are, the sooner they arrive, the better, as they are running out of time to salvage another season at the back of the grid.
