They are the only team listed on the stock market if I'm not mistaken so they don't have a choice

The F1 side of Williams may struggle but the other divisions seem to be doing very well. So the way I look at it Williams will never disappear as an engineering firm. As for the F1 side of things I have seen many times in the past where Williams has struggled but they always seem to bounce back. I still feel that this is the case now.

Yeah, those stories are circulating around for more than 10 years already.

This one is hardly anything insightful.

Just another case of lazy reporting. Saw one pretty much copy and paste about McLaren last year

I think that in the past these possibilities were relatively unsubstantiated but i have just read where Claire Williams herself has said that without a budget cap they will not survive. This is not external speculation but from a Williams dep team principal. True, she may be floating a BS story to try and influence those who are making decisions but ATM F1 faces it's biggest hurdle for many many years.LM will have to pull something out of their hat if they are to break the nexus between Mercedes and Ferrari and introduce changes that will see more $ flowing to the non major manufacturer teams. Only time will tell. As i have said in the past, i do believe that Williams should be looking at selling out to a better funded organisation or else take on a new partner who has the wherewithal to move the team upwards.

Claire's comments were about long term future and she made sure the near future of the team is secure.I don't think any team except top3 are anything different.Haas, Mclaren, Force India, Str all in same boat and in even worse conditions.

F1 has become truly 2 tier. We've always had 1 or 2 teams out front but that used to change from Williams to Mclaren to Ferrari to Renault and so on. A team would hit upon a good concept and dominate for a few years and then a rule change would come or someone else would find something better.

What we know now is that there is virtually zero chance of any team outside of the top 3 regularly competing for wins. Maybe Renault can find the money to take them on. Maybe the size of the Mclaren business will allow them to get up there but the fact is that the top 3 just throw money at it until it works.

In the past this didn't always work but I think that has changed with technology. More money you can pour into CFD and building scale models etc., the more benefit you get.

Did anyone see the FE race in Rome? I've watched this series a bit and been a little underwhelmed but that was a race and a half. F1 needs to take notes.

There are some hard decisions to be made. F1 cannot be a one chassis series but at the moment it's pretty dull. It's a 6 car race for the win and it will stay that way. Smaller teams will have to become 'B' teams or fold. Same with tracks. Get rid of the ones that constantly serve up boring races. For Aus, go back to Adelaide. Some fantastic races there. Just do it.

Ozzy, Williams could actually be a B+ team if they hurry up and get their head round it. Potential for podiums and an occasional win! To me it’s like buying a Skoda. Underneath it’s a VW Golf! Just about as good but cheaper!

Will anyone replace Martini?

When we had lost AT&T after 2011, whe didn't have a title sponsor for the next 2 years.

Plenty of team on the grid right now without title sponsors.
