Please don't go killing my mood
Don't forget that Ericsson's backers are still heavily involved in Sauber, so perhaps it is more a case of that than him having a bad agent.
Apologies, I missed your point
I've always been a fan of drivers ahead of teams. I started watching the sport specifically because of Jacques Villeneuve. If I had to pick a favourite team, my soft spot is for Williams. It is a shame they've had very little going for them for a very long time now. Each team has their own great stories ingrained in their history, and I do love that each team is a unique entity. Most leagues operate as collection of identical organisations that happen to be in opposition. F1 teams have their own character and approach. There is no one way to win at the sport, there is no one way to survive in the sport. Even though Frank historically saw the driver as his least favourite part of the car, I think their main problem is they haven't had a driver to build the team around. I think that's how Williams is built, and without that key piece, I don't see how they'll get ahead. I'm not saying they need the 'best' driver, but they need a driver that is in sync with the team. The drivers they've had for the last 10 years seem to be at odds with the team. (Just in terms of working as smooth team.. not suggesting personality conflicts, or that anyone isn't doing their best) It's entirely possible for a cast off from one team to be the missing link in another.
