The bigger pothole would have been Anderson ,methinks.
Wirth has done a fair number of decent cars so I´m not convinced he´s the reason for all this not working out.
They have produced complete working cars .
They are NOT hopelessly slow compared to the hailed efforts of Gascoyne but with considerably less current F1 experience.
To me they failed big time with the hydraulics last year -which must be attributed to a big portion to x-trac and we don´t know who refused to open the suitcase with cash to solve these issues quicker.
To pull the plug completely now hints at the head of the fish who is to blame for it not to work.The decision seems completely mad and not realistic at this time of year.
It is entirely right to raise the pressure when targets are not met.
But even the announcement of aiming at Q2 this year was really more than romantic....you can burn down the house overnight but as we saw in the past how long it took serious works outfits to raise to the front ...Toyota ,Ford/Jaguar,BAR ...to climb up the order does not only take time but serious money as well and the right people on top
