Yes itís a v tough time being a Williams fan. Love for the team is as strong as ever. Hoping against hope things will come better, heart hopes so, but head says money talks in F1 and the team has significant pressures in that regard.

Ultimately I hope they find a way of refinancing to put proper investment into the team...facilities, process and people whilst keeping some Williams family ownership and the name.

The more I think of it I only support three teams in the order of 1. Williams, 2 McLaren and 3. Ferrari. Long term entrants and not a marketing brand / rehashed name exercise.

Want them all to thrive, glad McLaren recovering and on the up (but Iím not a fan of Zac Brown nor Bahraini money). Williams are the most fragile at present, and I just hope F1 management try to steer a few deals Williamís way as Bernie would have done (not sure they will as I think F1 now tries to be less obviously supporting some teams / owners).
