Seems very practical to me. Focus on the car. No need to create drama and extra work by switching up drivers mid-season. And likely the end result of a driver swap would not be significantly different than now. In that they would still be fighting for positions at the rear.

At best a driver swap would mean that the Williams finish 19th and 20th instead of 20th and 19th.

To me Kubica was a calculated risk with not much to lose. Now if only the Williams car was as good as it's pitstops...

Claire Williams: "aren't you fed up with winning? Why not drive for us and see what you can do?" A bit defeatist but just some banter.

Those laps of Silverstone with Lewis were special - no forced smiles from Frank, show how much he simply adores the game still.

Hope he has reasons to smile driven by team performance sometime soon, I really do.

Nice to see Frank enjoying himself. And he would have enjoyed the fact both cars finished in front of the Ferrari of Vettel

I had a chat with someone who's familiar with that situation last week; they commented that the sponsors are very happy indeed. The drain cover and subsequent bridge incident in Baku gave them vastly more TV exposure across the world than expected!

Longer or shorter than they keep Kubica. Although he has scord the point.

Overall this was fun to see in Q3. The topic of Q3 is always around 15/16th! However, lets not get giddy. We need step 2 to follow step 1.
