Williams Martini Racing deputy team principal Claire Williams has stated that her outfit will not get carried away ahead of the start of the 2015 Formula One season.

The Grove based outfit had a fantastic season in 2014 where they scored points in every race of the season and finished in third place in the championship ahead of Scuderia Ferrari. The team secured nine podium finishes in 2014, their first season with a supply of Mercedes power units.

Williams revealed that their main aim is to improve on the performances from last season but refused to be drawn on what their targets would be. 

Prior to the start of last season, Williams stated that she would be happy if the team scored points in every race and that is something that they did. 

The team also secured a front row lock out at the Austrian Grand Prix for the first time since the 2003 German Grand Prix.

Williams also confirmed that her teams double podium finish at the season finale in Abu Dhabi last season was the highlight of her career to date.

The double podium ensured that the team captured third place in the Constructors championship and in doing so they collected their best finish in Formula One since 2004 when they finished the season in fourth place in the standings.
