Large sponsorship flattered the teams engineering skills. Williams proble was they persisted with poor design staff for too long. BMW tried to tell them that their chassis tech was not up to spec before they left.
Sam Michael was the prime culprit he had surreptiously climbed the gresy pole without any design ability. Last years car was conceptually flawed and if you can believe it OVERWEIGHT as Williams composite technology had fallen so far behind the top teams.
The reality is now Williams need two pay drivers bringing > $10 million each to stabilise the team. There's just no guarantee that any Qatar deal will come to fruition and they need a fall back position.
Can i get some sources to validate the overweight assertion please.
Thanks in advance.
