Williams having no car until Wednesday it seems.
You have to wonder what they do all winter as it's not as if testing is a surpise announcement.
So sad to see such a great team of the past in this mess.
So true. I don't have much hopes for them this season and I struggle to see where their next break will come from. At the start of the hybrid era in 2014, they were blessed to have the Mercedes and a solid chassis to make them a front running team once again. That was wonderful to see. But their decline since, despite still enjoying the benefits that the Merc engine has provided, has been alarming and last year was a depressing sight. Seeing them trailing at the arse end of the grid with two pay drivers (many people would say undeserving of their place in the sport) made such a placement on the grid unsurprising and, dare I say it, deserved.
On the driver front, I'd be astonished if the return of Kubica didn't turn out to be a total damp squib. That said, I have high hopes for George Russell, he looks to be a fine young talent and I back him to outdo Kubica this season. Likewise with Lando Norris in McLaren who despite a somewhat disappointing GP2 (even though he finished runner up to Russell in GP2) had had a pretty meteoric rise thanks to his skill. Although at age 18 I fear that it may have come a little too quickly for the guy.
That will be the most fascinating aspect of this season for me. Britain is blessed to have two phenomenal young drivers in the f1 ranks this year and if they do well then the post Lewis era may not be too bad for British fans.
