Any article suggesting Williams to perhaps one day sell out his team, is an article not to be taken seriously.

It would be great if it was Williams Porsche but if it was just Porsche well that would be very sad and would spell the end of Williams for good (Sm17)

I wonder would this message board turn into a Porsche F1 supporters board or would it just close? (Sm17)

I'd buy a vintage 911... rebadge it Williams Martini... and parade around it smiling smiley

Porsche won't buy a team and I don't think Williams would sell.

Asked if the current plans for a twin-turbo V6 with reduced technology could attract Porsche to F1, Meschke said: "Absolutely. We have to cut costs in F1, and it's a good way to reach this target."

He added that "discussions are around being a supplier", so forming a works team was not on the agenda.

As long as it was exclusive it would be great.

Would we rather have, hypothetically,
Williams Honda or
Williams Porsche?

History sake Id say Honda.
Marketing wise, realistically and deep in my heart Porsche.

I'd say let's see Honda break their works deal with Mclaren and join STR as a supplier, sortout their engine there and then make a works deal with them in 2019.
I don't know where but I remember our Mercedes deal is a 5 yrs one, which will be up by the end of 2018.
Though it's all wishful thinking, considering how many "if"s should happen and then if this happens with Honda, RBR is there to grab the deal most likely.

On the other hand, should Honda get it right at STR, there are two competitors less to worry about who snatches Porsche up. RBR then has its works deal and wouldn't pick Porsche over that. Only Woking and Force India then.

The Mercedes deal is 7 years, 2014-2020. And thank God for that because it's the only competitive element to Williams right now!

Would love to see a works or exclusive deal for the 'new era' but until then engines aren't our problem. Still it's nice to dream about these things.

The Mercedes deal was never officially been announced at what length. So I find it hard to believe that 2020 was the end date.
I suspect Williams to have negotiated not so much a length or a term, but a deal of a maximum cost and a clause to leave Mercedes (or Mercedes to ditch Williams) to announce it before month X. Something like that.

As Eagle F1 said, the engine is the best thing we have.

I d say the Bottas deal would have been another situation to prolong the association with mercedes, so I would think that we are there till 2020.
