Poor guy seeks every possibility to attack Williams after he was not allowed there.
Wondering why he was dumb when Claire did the Mercedes/Massa/Martini/Pat deal to shoot us from 9th to 3rd.
Williams uses to make medicore drivers look better than they were.JV one of them.DC & Hill others.

I believe one of the reasons Williams had no interest in keeping JV was his insistence on setting up hi car in odd ways which meant there was a constant battle between him and PH. When he went to BAR as the golden boy, he finally got his way and was owned by Jenson.

I think there is a lot of resentment there and he can't let it go. No point arguing with him.

Seems to be echoing what many have expressed on this board. But I regress this is a forum for Willy Fans and the rules are different in the real world.

Real world shows Claire has done great deals over the years.Just stop smoking stuffs and you can see them.

Mercedes, Massa, Pat Symonds, Paddy Lowe, Martini...All of them the bests possible options for a backmarker of 2013.

And a backmarker in 2018. Seems you measure progress on past performances while ignoring 5 years on they have not built on that progress.

It's half year of bad results within 5.
To be 90% of times successful is not something to jump at someone.

Yes, it's half a year of bad results, which affects the development of 2019's challenger. I suppose Williams is holding off development until the FW41 is sorted out? One would think there is a "Plan B" in place?

I don't like JV but he is right on this matter, but anyway Claire made good and bad decisions just as any other Team Principal.
She's already paying a high price this year for some very bad ones and right or wrong I doubt anyone dislikes it more then herself, she's a Williams and she obviously wants to carry on her father sucess but times are diferent.
Well, from were we are the only way is up anyways.

Perhaps not "holding off" but but I'm guessing that work on the FW42 is severly limited at this moment.

Next year regulations are an evolution of this year.It makes sense to work on this project flatout to see where the mistakes are done.whether it pays off this year or not, no problem as long as they see where it went wrong.
Still I don't see it as Claire's weakness.She took the best possible out there to sort the car out.Her job is management not desigung a car.for management side if she fires Paddy Lowe after a mistake, I will be on your side as it would mean she is lost under pressure.

---------------------

To be honest, the trouble we are in it is an unwanted child of desire to stay private team and if anyone is responsible for this is Frank himself.Once we were a major force in F1, winning titles, spending the most...That was the time to start expanding the project, like Mclaren did.We should have done it.With tobbacco sponsers getting banned in the sport, there is no way to perform at highest level with a few sponsers and prize money.All the teams up there are those who get money from outside of F1.selling cars or drink cans.We didn't and we are paying the price for it, pinning our hopes to a budget cap.

The change to the front wing seems rather small on paper but will probably have massive impact on the airflow across the car so new aero design will be needed.
I wonder how much we can take from our current car onto the next one. The biggest problem for us could be the bargeboards and all the aero bits around them plus the new front suspension because the 2019 outwash from the front wing will be reduced. Sidepods shape will probably change too.
Its really hard to imagine that we will carry alot of things from current to 2019 car.

I think we need Mike on this one (Sm1)

I was thinking exactly the same as you when reading the impact of changes to the wings until 2-3 TDs made interviews and downplayed the big impact of them on next year cars, claiming much of the current philosophy of the design can be carried over to the new one.
