Re: Tough time for Williams supporters

What I've found really interesting/sad in certain forums is the general consensus on lots of F1 sites and especially dedicated forums is that Williams are dead/need to die/they want dead.

It's like some kind of personal win and accomplishment if Williams fail entirely and fold. Why would it be so personally satisfying for one of the top 3 most successful teams in F1 history to shut up shop and make hundred of employees unemployed!

On one site I don't post on much anymore that I really enjoyed in the past has a moderator who uses every single chance to wax lyrically about how Williams is doomed, everyone involved are hopeless and the world would be better without them. Like seriously! We are down, stop with the sucker punches already! I remember Caterham raising enough crowd funding to scrape the cars to their final race. But with Williams, it's as if we are a dying Dracula and all the villagers from near and far are coming together to toe us up, throw us on a wood heap soaked in petrol and set it alight! All the while singing songs as if around a camp fire.

Anyway, yes this year has been horrid, but will we get back to being competitive... I don't know, I hope so. I miss the days of fighting at the front, near the front... Or even fighting for any position at all! Can Williams be saved from non existence like the great names like Tyrell, Brabham, Cooper and Lotus? Maybe.

Fingers crossed that 2020 we at least end up near the Alfas and Torro Rosso's!

"Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more"!
