BMW motorsport director Gerhard Berger thinks Williams are still on course to achieve their target of second in the Constructors' championship this season. The team were leading the standings until Ferrari took a 1-2 finish with Michael Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello at the San Marino Grand Prix but Berger was not disappointed with Williams' Ralf Schumacher and Juan Pablo Montoya finishing third and fourth.

"It's clear that Ferrari has built very good cars and they make sure our work and our targets are not over," he said. "Nevertheless third and fourth positions are positive results. In the past four weeks, when we were leading the championship, we never forgot our outspoken target for this season, which is second place in the constructors' championship. With just three points back from Ferrari and a considerable gap to our pursuers, we are placed more than well."

Williams are undoubtedly looking strong this year and their target of second in the championship is entirely realistic. McLaren, who have been considered Ferrari's main rivals the last couple of years, have been plagued by unreliability in the first four races of this season. With only nine points gathered between David Coulthard and Kimi Raikkonen, McLaren are twenty eight points adrift of Williams and only one point ahead of Renault.
