Williams is still working on its KERS system and planning to debut the technology at some point, according to the team's technical director Sam Michael.

Only Ferrari and McLaren are still persevering with KERS at Grands Prix this season, and the FOTA alliance of eight current teams have agreed not to use the systems at all next year.

Williams and Force India, however, were expelled from the teams association earlier this year, while the former team has been constantly working on its unique flywheel-based approach to KERS.

A spokesman recently told us that, as a non-FOTA member, Williams is not strictly bound by the 2010 KERS ban.

"We still have a team of people working on KERS, but I don't want to put a date on when we'll run it for the first time," said Michael.
