Frank Williams and Patrick Head stepping away hastened the decline mind you, they've never seemed to have the same standards after that.Williams family stepping away from the team after Monza. The team will still be called Williams, but it's just not going to be the same is it? End of an era, really.
Think the writing was on the wall many years ago, when BMW fell out with them.
Certainly wouldn't have helped. Especially in the case of Patrick Head. They never really replaced Adrian Newey either.Frank Williams and Patrick Head stepping away hastened the decline mind you, they've never seemed to have the same standards after that.
How long before they go the way of Tyrrell and other names of the past?
Don’t agreeShows just how good F1 can be without a Mercedes walking into the distance.
I agree, this power mode ban is going to bite the FIA on the arse i feel
Couldn't agree more. A lot of times, this season especially, people have moaned about Hamilton/Mercedes running away with it while missing the McLaren/Renault/Racing Point battle going on behind. I accept it can be to do with the broadcasters focussing on the front more.Don’t agree
This battle has been happening every race, just not for the podium.
If people judge the race only on who wins, they miss out on lots of good battling between teams in the midfield.
I think the new generation of drivers are inadvertently working on that i.e. Norris, Leclerc, Russell, Albon with their Twitch streams. The same with F1 generally being more social media savvy these days after Ecclestone and his "Why would I try to attract younger fans, they have no money" stance.Im not disagreeing, the midfield battle is insanely good. It's enjoyable for us enthusiasts.
But it's not going to attract mew followers or the younger generation. Battles at the front do that. Also am i the only one that feels Lewis might call it a day if he passes Michael's wins record this season and gets title 7? Feel if Toto leaves also, Lewis will follow
Anyone watched Drive To Survive on Netflix?
Really good series & particularly relevant with the performances of Gasly this season. He had a horrible time of it last year.
