I guess part of their debacle came when Senna died. He was not the whole team, but remember his death led to a trial investigating which parts of the cars had “fatigue”. So probably that also lead to a less aggressive development (for a couple of years). After Hill and Villeneuve, they failed to retain Villeneuve (any resemblance with Button / Brawn? and the consequent fallout of Mercedes?) and then they couldn’t find a good drivers pair until Ralf and Montoya, but again, they couldn’t build the environment to retain Montoya to McLaren and Ralf to Toyota (actually Ralf showed his peak in 2003 and started to decline). The post Schumacher era didn’t bring any great rookies into William’s crew.
I hope they can, the sooner the better, build up and keep momentum again. They deserve another historic chance. They must drop Maldonado and see if Bottas is worth it. Or start on the scratch with new drivers in 2014.10th April 2013, 16:07 at 4:07 pm #225348

The other day I saw on Twitter how the Italian F1 magazines have, one number after another (of issue) ONLY pictures of Alonso on the cover
Do you think they will sell the magazines with a cover of Lewis?
That’s just marketing19th January 2013, 20:20 at 8:20 pm #223951
I speak and write in Spanish, your call…7th January 2013, 14:21 at 2:21 pm #190721
not exactly what you say , ut in the early 90’s there was a F1 game where you could create your own tracks, and (ahead o its time I think) you could change the names of the team drivers, so actually you were able to create your own team as well. I don’t remember the name of that game (Schum was on a benneton and the mclarens were in the old white and red livery, any help with the name PLEASE!!!3rd January 2013, 16:24 at 4:24 pm #223848
I would consider Brazil (for the challenges it almost always brings), Spa (because it’s very very extense, hard, slopy and also praised by drivers) and Canada (which is a good race and a “fast Monaco” for the walls always close.29th December 2012, 2:16 at 2:16 am #14485126th November 2012, 23:52 at 11:52 pm #188062
After a season….
I read some of the comments and just one or two predicted he could win. Great!!!22nd October 2012, 18:14 at 6:14 pm #140754
5, add Jacques Villeneuve who raced but didn’t win Lemans22nd October 2012, 18:12 at 6:12 pm #140753
4 champions, Graham Hill, Mike Hawthorn, Jochen Ridnt and Phil Hill17th October 2012, 17:34 at 5:34 pm #209486
Yes, but he would make the Kovalainen – Mc Laren thing. he’ll be outscored by whoever his partner will be, win just a race and fade out
When it’s all said and done, will Alonso ever be outscored by a teammate?5th October 2012, 16:17 at 4:17 pm #209447
Well other than the top 6 and all the ones you mentioned… so Perez
When it’s all said and done, will Massa get a podium agaiin?28th September 2012, 22:17 at 10:17 pm #211334
Gutierrez has some backing from Carlos Slim Jr right? so would fit in the place and sauber could keep their sponsors and with that the money to keep the fight alive28th September 2012, 17:00 at 5:00 pm #211326
it should be Buemi. I really think they deserved a good chance this year but Marko Rosso sacked them. Sauber can give him (or why not Alguersuari or however his name is) a good chance to shine again, even make podiums (Sauber is fully capable to do so)28th September 2012, 16:58 at 4:58 pm #211489
He should go kneeting :P
Well seriously he should go to WILLIAMS. The car has an extraordinary potential but due to the drivers they got we had just a glimpse of it. he should take Maldonado or Senna’s seat and make some magic to finish his career in another great team. It’s the only team remaining which has won a race this year. He could make it even better. Maldonado’s money? Imagine the marketing!!!! Why don’t you just give me Sir Frank’s or Toto’s phone?
