Not been feeling well today so I actually missed the race which was disappointing on one hand and not on the other.

The result for Williams was pretty much as I expected. Shame that Robert was to suffer damage to his car at the start seeing him forced to pit. After that the rest of his race was more of a test session really with the drivers testing all three tyre types.

The same goes for George Russell. Both drivers simply suffered from a lack of pace which there was nothing that either driver could do anything about.

It is so hard to assess Robert's form with a car that is just not working as well as having to contend with damage in this race. But it would have been oh so easy for him just to park his car saying that the damage forced him to retire but he kept going to the end to finish the race.

George was in a similar situation running so far off the pace but he kept it going to bring his car home which for a rookie was a big thing.

Anyway for the team they now just have to put their heads down get the spare parts situation resolved before Bahrain as well as looking at the data from the Australian GP weekend as there were times where Robert felt that the car did have pace and the team just needs to understand why and how to get even more pace from the car.

Oh yes one final thing a certain TD should be shown the door if there was any possibility of his return.
