Apparently,in 2018, there are 2,208 individual billionaires in this World. My guess is then that there must be hundreds of thousands of Millionaires as a minimum.

I reckon there are no more than 6 F1 drives available for sale, 2 of which are at Williams.

I'm thinking demand for F1 drives, even from a tiny percentage of the above filthy rich, is certain to outstrip supply.

Williams plan is clearly to milk these suckers dry....why else would you put up with the likes of Stroll.

Yep, maybe it is like a well known van rental company that many years ago I once went to hire a van from at the price writ large outside the depot, apparently for which I could indeed hire the van, but not unlock the door, drive it or put anything in it, all of which were extras....

Perhaps the deal with Porsche is already done, and the squad is doing the next 3 seasons on the cheap until the massive pay.. transformation shows up

Williams F1 Team have won the race!


The annual F1 raft race that is. We will probably never hear that said about Williams F1 on track for a long, long time.

Apparently PL is now saying they will make 'good progress' by the 'summer break', it was supposed to be by Spain wasn't it! And they are working on the 2019 car as well!

That looks more "Jeux Sans Frontières" than F1.

trying to think of something positive to say like nice attempt at trying a 1 stop strategy...

but really its more like what were they thinking trying a 1-stop strategy after lap 1!!!

and why put both cars on the same gamble?

and why not adapt after noticing the issues of a flat spot/vibrations on Strolls car?

i am at a loss. they dont even look to be trying!
