Seems like quite a bit of loss. Gillan and Barnett were good. I don't know about McCullough.

Yes, I'm wondering too about all those engineering departures.

Maybe they are making space for some Honda engineers to integrate the new powertrain?????

IMO McCullough was a good engineer - he has a better understanding of a race driver's needs than most race engineers, because he used to race himself.

I havent seen anything about the replacements....

Bottas has mentioned that the new Williams will not have the ugly nose of last season, but no more details about the new project have been said.

So, Toto Wolf leaves. Wonder how that would affect them? They had strong year, but people leaving, doesn't look particularly happy.

This could explain why the launch has been delayed, people have left the team and presumably new people have joined the team (I hope so) so they need time to fix everything and finish building the car. Anyway, these changes in these months are not good news; stability is a key factor when you are designing a new car.

Exactly, and I wonder why it happens after what was the best year in a few years.
