The hell is this? Surely these idiots from the missed apex are wrong. From reddit:

"Missed Apex were reporting that Williams were going to the other teams for parts for the second car."

"Yeah they mentioned that apparently the Strolls are playing hardball for money to close out Lance's contract and some of the Kubica money might not be as available as they were planning going into the season - net result being they have a cashflow problem. Spanners didnt really give any sources other than saying they had been talking to some people in and around the paddock though, as you might expect."

Go listen to the podcast!
Then decide for yourself.
I hope as a true ( blinkered) fan that it’s mostly bollocks!

I stopped listening to their shitty podcast a while ago because I couldnt stand the pople there. There are only two people on that podcast who are reasonably neutral - the american guy and that GT racing driver. The other ones are biased as hell and seems like they hate Williams for some reason.

Neither seem to have car space so it's mostly a supplier contract by the look of it

TBH I’d never heard of them. As with most rumours there is a probably some truth and lies in them . Just seems we may have to wait and see.

That's Chemist Warehouse, one of the local Rexona distributors. Happens in several countries.

Ask yourself the following question: what parts are interchangeable between cars?
Answer: apart from the engine mechanics: none

What a load of c*rap that Podcast was. Tabloid stuff. The quality of their podcasts has been deteriorating significantly especially since summer. Can't see why Saward would want to be associated with that annoying guy Spanners.

Maybe it wasn't parts? How do you classify raw material that is common among teams?

Don't know if it's been posted, but there is a good article on racefans.net about Williams by Dieter Rencken. A reasonable interpretation of why things are like they are.

There is a surprisingly large amount of the technical insides that are sourced from the same distributors so that's a big generalisation but in essence you're right. There is absolutely nothing another team has in their garage that would service what Williams would allegedly need which is spares of their own products. It's a nonsensical rumour or an overinflated one. Just stuff that's difficult to prove either way and not significant enough to be important. Perfection for shoddy journalism

But I know this - hence why I called them idiots grinning smiley How can anyone say something like this during their podcast with a straight face is beyond me. The worst thing is that so many people on reddit believe them.
