It's looking bad for Ralf...

From Autosport...

BMW Could Do Without Ralf...
http://www.autosport.com/newsitem.asp?id=26223&s=5

BMW was thought to be the only thing keeping Ralf in with a hope of continuing his contract with Williams beyond the end of the year. If they're not fussed then Ralf's BMW future looks even more bleak.

I've never eally felt that BMW are that bothered about having Ralf in the lineup, nor a German for that matter. That's a refreshing outlook anyways.

Ralf really hasn't got any hope of staying at Williams, and he's probably already signing those prelimenary contracts with Toyota I reckon.

As I have said in a previous post Williams can probably have Fisichella and Heidfeld drive virtually for free and spend the £20 million driver budget on the car.

There's even the possibility that you'll have to change you're nickname when Ralf's out of F1 , although its somewhat unlikely, but nothing's certain in F1.

On the brief interview with Ralf on the grid yesterday, Ralf did not appear to be very interested or have the "eye of the tiger" look.

how does ralf still have a job?he hasn't done anything truly significant in the Williams in his tenure there. JPM immediatly outpaced him, and out scores him, he is in one of the best machines and does little with it, he is like a German Coulthard, great stuff does well, very well at times, but isn't the stuff a WDC seems to be made of- (i hope i am wrong about DC but 10 years and zilcho in a great car, and KIMI slapped him about all year)

It say's in the end of this article
And then there is Nick Heidfeld, who gave Kimi Raikkonen a run for his money at Sauber, who looks set for a tough time at Jordan, who should be available, should not be too expensive and who also happens to be German...

That would be a bad choice.I say

Ooohh, thats a scary thought, after watching those guys drive yesterday.

As for Ralf going to Toyota, what a huge step backwards that will be, after watching(well, I never actually saw them!)that miserable performance yesterday!

Im really interested to see how Ralf will cope without Montoya as a team mate. Before Jp's arrival at Williams i honestly didn't think Ralf could win a race, even after the williams performance at Brazil 2001. Having Montoya seemed to be the kick in the backside Ralf needed to win races. Will he still have this motivation in 2005?

Im not sure if I agree with what BMW have said there with regards nationality not being important. They have there eyes set on the developing Estonian market - and suprise suprise Estonain racer, Marko Asmer has BMW all over him.....fortunately hes pretty quick.
