Where does everyone expect the FW42 to be? Good enough to do what Sauber did last year? Progressively get better throughout the season?

2011-->2012 and 2013-->2014 were much bigger jumps towards the front of the grid than anyone had expected. Historically, Williams have a good record of big improvement after a horrible season.

You never know, though. F1 is not about your own job, but about how well you do compared to your opposition. Possible over and underperformance of other teams on the grid will have a significant bearing on where Williams will be this year and this is something that is very hard to predict.

I think its pretty likely that it will be a polish company and that is the reason Kubica is in the car

New title partnership sounds very positive until I remember Williams probably sold it for peanuts again.  Still, I choose to be optimistic!


Some money are better than no money.

Also, wasn't the talk that Williams wanted approx 5m USD more from Rich than what they had from Martini (so 20, instead of 15), but Rich got their deal with Haas for half the price. In addition, the BWT-deal for Force... Racing Point is also around 15m USD. It seems to be around there the price for title sponsorship of a mid-grid F1 team is.

Go Claire! Although the end was contentious.

 

12 hours to go until launch if my timing is correct.

I remember him saying several times that in everyday life his limitations are much more visible. I guest that's how it looks like.

Random one; my sisters boyfriend is co-owner of that scalextric hire company (they do every race weekend at Grove for them at a purpose built track).

I hope its refreshingly different and not just Martini without the martini stripe; a livery that looks like same old grandma just with her purse nicked.

It'd be fantastic if we see the United Colors returning to the F1 circus.   :cat:

A proper launch, with a stage and a sheet over the car and everything.

Thankyou Williams.

Benetton? Was just thinking the other day would be cool to have them or New Man back in racing.

 

Not long to wait now!

Ah, so the main thing I learnt today, that I didn't want to, is the meaning of the slang 'skint'.

 

Stay classy Williams.
