Entirely logical, if a little disconcerting.

It seems as if Frank and Patrick *have* realised that perhaps they are no longer in a position to give what they used to. This is life. Their actions are to try and insure the company against the future.

Crusty, I can see your logic, and I am in exactly the same situation. The ideals that attracted me to Williams were in evidence up until the end of 2010. 2011 was upsetting performance wise, but also because the team seemed to abandon many of the sporting ideals i loved about them.

I see 2012 as a new start. They don't have to prove anything to me or anyone else (bar the shareholders), but if they continue to adhere to the ideals of 2011 (irrespective of performance) I fear I will tire of the whole shooting match.

I'm not being melodromatic as it has been put, but as I read somewhere, the Williams we knew is increasingly hard to identify, and I too and trying to work out what I am supporting.

As for Claire, I know Frank is her harshest critic professionally, so she must be good. All the best to her and she is after all a bone fide Williams who will be emotionally invested in the company, and for that she deserves support.
