  • I am by no means a Stroll basher (sounds more polite than a Lance basher) and thought he has a decent rookie season.  I just get this kind of 'Rosberg' vibe from Sirotkin.  But I am notoriously rubbish when it comes to predicting how Williams will do.

  • Hmm, yes "Lance Basher" sounds like a Medical malpractice case to me! lol

    Seriously though, it's boils down to "Have Williams got it right or disastrously wrong in 2018?".   You can tell the Stroll fans when you hear comments on how little he was behind the experienced Massa, but on the flip side, Massa was standing on the retirement line, so Stroll "should" be significantly faster as the "talented rookie" ... regardless of the current performance of the car, agree?

    I feel that Sirotkin may have a shaky start to the season, but over a season, I expect him to do better than Stroll in his first season - and as I have mentioned before, would not be surprised if Sergey become the No.1 driver at Williams.

    All the best,
    Cal :)

  • I was expecting Williams' start to be shaky.

    I was not expecting it to stand or fall on a hamburger wrapper...

  • Worrying times for Williams!

    I hope Stroll doesn't become outspoken like Villeneuve? ... as the fragile balance between Lance & Sergey as the two rookies in the race seats could leave Williams wondering "WHAT DID WE DO???" ... mind you, Kubica is ready, should Williams realize that their season is falling apart by the summer break!?!?

    All the best,
    Cal :)

    But of course Stroll is financially invested in Williams, so he may have that right to criticise the management of his Dad's cash.  JV was just arrogant and a whiner.

  • It is tricky regarding how far Stroll can push.  Of course, in one sense he is a customer, buying a service from Williams, but if I remember it correctly, Williams hold the cards regarding his contract so maybe he cannot push too far as there are not an abundance of teams now that need a still unproven driver, even with his vast cash supply. 

    Still, the weekend was a disaster and it now seems likely that the races to come are going to be equally as painful.  The sandwich bag incident for Sirotkin, what are the odds of that?

    Sorry Luke I mixed up your list with my own.  :fool:
     
    When you've walked Silverstone, Donnington and Snetterton perimeters trying to find the best place to view motor racing from you'll probably add 3 to your list.  :D
