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

Now, I actually wish I had walked around those tracks looking for a good view.  Silverstone I was able to stroll straight on into with my ticket and the only time I've done Donington was for the Download Festival.  Still, I did make sure I took a pilgrimage to some of the famous parts of the track whilst others were busy with random (and often bad) bands.

I live by two simple rules:

1- Tin foil for headwear
2- Clingfilm for sarnies

 :D

In this case, "better" means "less likely to fly off the sandwich and into anyone's radiator" ;)

I guess then we would not have the curious problem of a melted bag!

Car designer Ed Wood has left the team due to 'Personal Reasons'.  Hope everything is okay with him but I am not surprised this has happened, more surprised it didn't happen earlier to be honest given the wholesale changes that have taken place at Williams in recent seasons.

I'd be happier with the podiums of a couple of years ago under Symonds, but I long for the Championships of the Head years.

Add this to the long list of things wrong!
https://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/sirotkin-had-very-painful-seat-problem-in-spanish-gp-1037389/?s=1

As I was at the Spanish GP it was painful to see how impossible the Williams car is to drive - I think both drivers did well to get the cars to the end....slipping and sliding all over the place right from the off. didn't seem to matter which tyres or what state the tyres were in either. Truly awful to handle.

Is Sergey trying to say that this season's Williams is a pain in the ***?

Dirk de Beer has stepped down as Head of Aerodynamics at Williams, I guess he has fallen on his sword.

Yup! ... the inevitable outcome for any F1 team who used to be "up there" and are now "way down there".

All the best,

They mention that they may have a bug in their simulator software.

There's another thread that discusses using common parts to save money in F1.  If each team is creating their own simulation software, that's got to be tremendously expensive, and would probably be a huge advantage to a team that can hire an extra developer to get rid of the bugs that Williams may have.

... so, sounds like they have 99 bugs and have uncovered 1 of them!

Desperate days at Williams.  Will they even reach the grid in the next few years???

All the best,
Cal :)
