    Re: Formula One

    I expect Williams to have difficulty getting sponsors for 2020 if this year continues like last year. Without adequate funding, the team will either be sold or cease to exist. Smedley’s departure at the end of last season was a no-confidence vote for this year.

    Re: Formula One

    Add Wood and De Beer names to that list , under Paddy lowe , the engineering and design team has been decimated ..

    Lowe is coming from AMG, Williams run AMG power plants, the deal to run mercedes gearboxes was nixed in favor of their ally box where mercedes own box is carbon fibre ...

    I can see Williams not wanting to close their gearbox dept and layoff those workers , once lost you cant regain ...


    we will see ...

    IMO if they want to stay competive, they have to switch to Mercedes gearboxes. There is just no other way at this point.

    Its been slow around here so here goes...I don't often quote myself but how can I resist (gloating?) who can ignore the fact LeClerc out qualified Vettel TEN TIMES in a row. Clearly, Leclerc is the faster driver (at least over a single lap).

    The horsey cars have found speed the later part of this season which is a pleasant surprise, maybe we'll have some real on-track drama before the season is up. Ham will be WC this year, no doubt about that.

    Re: Formula One

    It has been slow.

    And the races are boring. The top 3 or 4 after 5-10 laps are still at the top at the finish line.

    LeClerc & Verstappen could bring it back - at least make it interesting.

    The races are almost predictable. Boring,
