My impression from a few weeks ago was that Symonds was likely to retire or take up a less taxing role somewhere else.

Autosport just confirmed massa back at Williams for 2017.....I bet Bernie had a hand in that, he needs a big south american driver to satisfy the biggest TV viewing audience.

P38 in workshop has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Maybe I'm a bit cynical,or as Frank Williams might say,realistic.Pat Symonds may well be stepping down from his position thats not quite the same as leaving the team and it may mean they will invent a job for him to keep him tied up until his knowledge of the new car is of no use to anybody else.His move will presumably leave a Paddy Lowe sized hole in the organisation and the cost of Mercedes engines may be substantially reduced if Mr Bottas is released to fill the Rosberg sized hole at Brackley.I can't imagine Williams will want two drivers who in F1 terms have L-plates and if Felipe Massa can overcome the embarrassment of aping Frank Sinatra,we know what comes next.

Martini had a hand in it, as they need a driver over 25 for contractual reasons.

Lowe seems to be the F1 version of the Dark Knight! When ever he arrives senior legends leave by the nearest exiT!

Frederic Vasseur has resigned from Renault after differences with senior managment.

Abiteboul is a joke. Everything he touches he messes up. Just how does he keep his job? Must have a powerful friend...

Worrying that Vasseur felt he had to go. I hope this doesn't derail Renault's progress, though, like McLaren, they seemed to have too many chiefs.

so many chiefs in fact that they dont feel the need to appoint a new person as team principle.

time will tell if that will prevent or lead to greater confusion.

and on another note, perhaps several quotes taken out of context but Abiteboul talking about Magnussen.

That KMag shot by him is surely a dig at Vasseur who wanted Kev to stay...
