Re: The All New FW43

I get the thinking behind just showing up with an FW42b for 2020, but one thing that I'm concerned about that hasn't really been discussed, staff experience and confidence in the team.

Hear me out... The past 2 years we have seen more staff leave Williams than rats vacating a sinking ship. If we have another disaster like the past 2 years, how many of our quality staff will be poached by more cashed up teams? Or conversely, how many quality staff that will be required to move on from RBR, Mercedes and Ferrari (due to the cost cap) will want to join Williams who won't have put a competitive car on track for 3 years running?

I agree we need to keep some cash in reserve from next year's budget to throw at a revival for 2021, but being careful not to hurt our future staff prospects by throwing away another season.

Just a thought.
