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."

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

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

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
