    Pat, I think, is assisting Liberty Media with research, so I don't think he's available...

  • That makes me wonder.... Will he get fed up with Liberty's corporate nonsense and long to get back to racing?

  • I think Pat might still have a good challenge in him, and I don’t think whatever contract he has with Liberty would get in the way if a team came calling with a Tech Chief role.

  • Is Clare Williams being defensive of the current driver line up is she really admitting the car is that bad!

  • Well she can hardly say they are both awful and the car is a championship contender being disguised as a dog by them.  Well, maybe she could  :crazy:

    But seriously I think she has to stick up for them, very few teams openly slate their drivers and it is obvious there is a tonne wrong with the FW41.  I am curious what 'dirty laundry' has yet to come out though given the high profile departures from the team already this year.

  • As bad as the car was in this past season, neither Stroll or Sirotkin really outperformed each other in my opinion. So, if anything, Kubica's first goal should be to outperform his teammate and hope that Williams can slowly claw their way back into mid field competitiveness .... right?

  • I feel Russell will beat Kubica as George is just more more in form in regards to single seater racing.  The Kubica story is phenomenal though and I am glad Williams are giving him a seat.  I hope he is still even close to how he was, but I still think Russell will have a little more speed.

    The FW41 has been slower than the FW40 at quite a few tracks. She can't really claim it's a good car.

    Claire almost always tries to 'give off' that positive business woman vibe, but I really don't think she can anymore, or she would be lying to herself!!

    In 2018, the car was soo bad, it almost didn't deserve to be in the same formula ... and the drivers were nothing to write home about either.   Even if they find something in 2019, it's a long painful way back.

    Best Regards,
    Cal :)

    Indeed, historically strong teams have gone through periods of decline before returning to their winning ways.  The first step to winning in Formula One is to show up.  Williams has shown they can do that.  That's something to build on. 

    Naturally it's hard to say when that will happen, but in baseball they say 'in spring training, every team could be the world champion'.
