Frank on the other hand, is now of an era where sponsorship demands results, and although in racing because of his love of racing, he also wants, no needs, results, and if that means getting rid of a driver because there may be a better one about, then so be it. Enzo wasn't one to be emotional about the past, car or driver, it appears Frank is of a similar vein................

Frank Williams / Team Williams are their own worst enemy, and have managed bringing a once proud team from the the forefront of the grid to somewhere in the middle and obtaining a status of non-relevance, except for matters where their sourly opposition can make a different, and will make a difference to the detriment of the overall growth of F1.
The 'real racer' shine was buffed of Frank and Patrick many many years ago.

I would have agreed with you up until 6 weeks ago. Right now the decision to not sell-out to BMW, and all the pain that caused, looked like the right one.
I think there is more to it that selling / not selling to BMW, but correct that the way how they in my view mishandled a manufacturer relationship again, is part where I find them their own worst enemy. That I believe is however also where some of the 'racers not puppets' stem from, and I just do not agree with it.
It is obvious that this (like most other issues debated here), is a very subjective matter, and it have 'pained' (well irked) me, that my favorite driver have been there for the past years. I hope that the rumors are true, and that Nico will find gainful employment at either Brawn or McLaren next season.
