I must bid farewell as well. Not because I'm a Rubens fan (he's ok). I'm actually a Williams fan since the Rosberg days. Big time Mansell fan as well. I liked the team even during the Hill years, even though I didn't like him that much as a driver. I cheered for Montoya, Webber, Heidfeld, Rosberg and Rubens for defending the Williams colors as well.

But now with 2 pay drivers in the 8-digit mark, they are no longer a team I desire to win. This feeling has been building up since last year when PDVSA was added as the main sponsor (the Venezuela government is an embarrassment to South America).

McLaren was always my 2nd choice team since the Lauda/Watson days, and I will be cheering for them as they at least are still a truebreed racing team. Williams has again become the amateur organization that they were in the 70s before Patrick Head joined the team. With him gone, and Adam Parr at the helm of the team, it's back to the Merzario days. This is not the 80s/90s Williams anymore, and hasn't been for a while.

Farewell, I wish you all well.
