I agree it doesn't make sense, but I expect the argument is that the proposal to move to a standard gearbox cassette was ditched earlier this year. So while they struggle to produce aero bits, they feel the need to devote budget on design, testing and construction of gearboxes.

I expect the the standard cassette idea was ditched as some teams feel they have some serious secret sauce stuff going on that differentiates them from their peers. Or are doing something different in the gearbox (that wouldn't be replicated in a standard unit) that works in conjunction with the engine in a unique way.

Do I think Williams is in this category? I doubt it. So like others, it continues to look dumb to me. Clearly Williams are great at making technical decisions! The proof is in the pudding!

No it's not. It's in the eating.

The phrase is "the proof of the pudding is in the eating," meaning that no matter how good something looks it's the taste that decides whether it's good or not.

Sorry. Hobby horse of mine. Back to Williams's plans

As I said earlier.. dig deep into the accounts. Williams are great as a Group financially.... Paddy did not help.. nor Mr Smedley...Both overgrown their tenure in F!..

Well, that is what I get for trying to use what I believe is a predominately UK idiom. I will try again, but this time using something a bit more natural for me...

Williams is still doing their own gearbox? Well bless their heart!

I am sure that neither Paddy or Rob helped Williams' financial position, both were trying to build better racing cars whilst the rest of the management group was apparently trying to spend as little as possible on F1.
