F1 Teams / Re: Williams really are a team in crisis
« Last post by Calman on Today at 06:20:43 AM »
I watched one of the Williams launch video clips.  Claire Williams face told a story at one segment.  Almost glancing across at the car saying "So ... how much pain are you going to create for us in 2019?".

However, just like the wishes of McLaren fans, I hope Williams turns that corner ... and QUICKLY.

Best Regards,
Cal :)

Dad has predicted Kimi to get a podium this year since more or less the moment when Kimi signed for them, and now I can see why.
Will they still sound like computers in mid-crash?

Pretty much!!

It's a bit like driving a brand new car out of a dealership, then trying to trade it in to the garage across the road a week later.

They might as well stick it out, get the best out of the "Car" ... then cut their losses when there is nothing more to gain.

Best Regards,
Cal :)

They are in a worse position than 2018. At least this time last year they had a car in a testable state (the tests were a week later, but it must have been crash-testable at least).

Of course, if the new car turns out to be way faster than the gloomy people predict (and that "2 seconds" prediction cannot be based on solid evidence, surely...), we'll have half-forgotten about this by mid-season and the Williams crew can laugh about it. Hope it turns out that way.

Hmmm ... like I outlined in another topic around here, I now worry that Williams could be in a more alarming position than that of 2018 (if that is even possible???).

Poor George Russell, having to put on a brave face, before he has even stepped in the car, suggesting that the "lack of a car" at this early point in PST is not as much of a panic situation as you would expect.  Hmmmm.

Best Regards,
Cal :)

If The Judge is correct, they've missed the bigger issue.

If Williams only found out about the problem when building the car last week, that means that as of last week, the car wasn't built yet.

You can't send a car to be crash-tested until it is built.

You can't test a car until it passes the crash test, and said test lasts an entire week, Monday-Friday, not modifiable by the teams.  (It's possible under The Judge's theory those lorries could be off to Paris for that testing but there would be no point taking them to Barcelona without stopping off there first).

Therefore, if this is the reason, Williams can't possibly participate in this test, because the earliest they could pass the crash test is next Friday (i.e. just in time for the second test). If they want any testing at all, they must pass that test, so they'll need to be conservative regarding how the car is, but that's relatively minor at this point - on this theory, they're guaranteed to miss 50% of testing. And they're worried enough not to admit this upfront, suggesting something large (such as sponsor money) is riding on how said non-participation is handled... ...which could lead to a heavy price down the road due to burning up that amount of goodwill advertising. Note that the first test is televised this year, but the second probably is not.

Some early studies indicate that vaping is as bad, or possibly worse than cigarettes. A lot depends on the fuel (?) used to produce the vapor.
Unless Liberty has decided there is no profit to be made, they are unlikely to sell. It's too soon. Any buyers will be looking for them to discount the price. I doubt Liberty will want to take a substantial hit after so short a time.

I'm a believer ... as I saw how fast his 'texting' skills were, while enjoying the sunshine off the side of the track.

I know, I know ... sorry Luke, hand me a dose of  |-( |-( |-( |-(

Seriously though, I have worries that Williams could do just as badly as their 2018 campaign!?!?
