greentrumpet should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
So. instead of grassing up the team and potentially stiffing Hamilton's first crack at WDC he snipes endlessly at the new engine supplier and persuades them to go to Renault. Proper team player, that. I would really like to see him pay for a seat against Norris or Russell.

And at least now they have confirmation it was.

Kubica needs to realise he cannot do F1 even in a Williams...and leave. I wonder how much he/someone is paying to keep him there?
I think it was during testing before the season, Sky analysed his steering wheel technique during oversteer/sideways stuff etc and his reaction with his hands was not quick enough. Very sad, but true..

Not wanting to be cruel but Kubica needs to realise he cannot do F1 and Williams need to give the seat up to someone else. It was a brave attempt, on Kubica's part but realistically, did it ever have a chance to succeed?

He probably does. But his Orlen sponsorship is paying quite a lot and donít forget he is getting a substantial salary. Unlikely to give that up as could his last ever big pay packet.

Is this a fact or speculation? I understood that the W Formula was sanctioned in order to provide the necessary qualifications for the Superlicence. That said Jamie Chadwick is no slouch.

However, I'm not a fan of the series personally since, as in Chadwick's case, females can compete equally with males as far as I'm concerned.

P38 in workshop has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
My understanding is that the winner of the W series gets some superlicence points, but needs more to qualify for the superlicence. Not sure if it would permit them to take part in a test session,or whether with testing so limited,they would be permitted to do so. A few laps during a filming day doesn't actually achieve much and I expect by now the team at the Williams simulator have a good deal of data to work with.

I wonder if Latifi will be put in the car before too long. Maybe their only option to replace Kubica

The 2020 may qualify for a small number of points if the FIA is satisfied as to the quality of the field. No points this season.

I have to say, against expectation, I’ve really enjoyed the series and coverage this year.

I really look forward to unearthing some undiscovered driving gem in the future but it’s not likely to be from this years ‘frontrunners.’
