Puts Barrichello's drive last year into some perspective now we see how fast Pastor is, he did a great job for a guy in his 19th season.

Williams really have to reconsider this garbage of Bottas glory running in the FP1.

Seriously cost themselves major points today because of Senna losing track time and setup time.

I feel Bottas is going to replace Senna next year anyway, Williams are pulling a Force India and just prepping their driver. Also for Maldonado, I told you he wasn't a pay driver, I also said he was going to cock it up today, but I always defended him when people called him a pay driver

Great result. Accumulation of their years of belief and dedication and racing spirits.

Confraturation. It will be harder for the rest of the grid to best the car with three times more down force!!

They need to give Bruno a couple of complete weekends before they start passing judgement on him, this FP1 shit has to end for a few races.

He will have a complete WE only in the street circuits (Monaco, Montreal, Valencia and Singapore) for a 4 mln of reasons.

Amazing how you consider where Williams were in the past 6 years.

Since getting rid of Sam Micheal they have improved and become Williams of old, not having a mediocre engineering make decision has gone a long way.

Now look at Mclaren, button was at all sea, couldn't get the tyres to work, reminds you of Williams of old.
Must be the Sam Micheal affect

What a great result. I was bracing myself for watching Pastor slip down the order and end up in the minor points and look what he does! What a great birthday present for Sir Frank too.

I think the greatest aspect of this win is that it was hard fought and totally on merit. We saw the difference between Williams and Sauber today. When Sauber was chasing a Ferrari, they played it safe. When Williams was chasing a Ferrari, they did what they had to to win.

Yep, Williams went aggressive to get the jump in the stops and it paid off big time, a great job! He who dares wins.

This was one of the most deserved wins i've ever witnessed.

When under pressure from one of the best overall drivers on the grid Pastor didn't lock up nor did he tighten up. He defended using rubber a few laps older. He defended under DRS and he put in one of the fastest cleanest outlaps i've seen.

Williams must be congratulated 100% on the strategy. It was the type of strategy that worked so well it seemed almost pre planned. They must also be commended for not releasing him to make sure the car was intact before it left the pits.

This team apparently did not forget how to win and how to use strategy correctly. Hats off to them and happy birthday Sir Frank. This win demonstrates the Winning foundation is still there.

Very nice interview with Sir Frank on Sky. The man still has the passion and the wit. It was interesting to hear him praising Adam Parr for his work in rebuilding the team.
