Perhaps they finally get to the point where they can start seeing that they themselves are to blame, instead of pointing elsewhere.
I don't like Williams, but that's a bit disingenuous. Williams haven't blamed anyone and been quiet to the point that some argued they were too passive about their situation.

perhaps you should start reading into what paddy lowe recently mentioned.
Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.

This?

https://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/lowe ... alue%5D=13

Lowe told Motorsport.com that Williams needed to "get out of this mindset that there are just two or three things to fix and than everything will be OK, and we'll be winning races. It is a mindset that I think has been in Williams for a very long time. The mindset we need is to say, 'Everything is available to be challenged and everything has to be done better every year', otherwise you're being left behind by a very strong set of competitors. You can't stand still in any area and this is a mentality that we need to adopt and we are adopting. That was not present before. Even I fell into that trap as a new fresh set of eyes to the team."

I don’t see any evidence of WR not taking responsibility for their failings. Tbh I see far more acceptance of fault there than at McLaren until very recently.

My understanding of the STR Randstad deal is that it is Randstad Italy. Williams’ former deal was with Randstad UK. Different deals. The fact that Williams has signed a driver - Russell - who comes with no financial support or incentives for the first time in a decade does not speak to me of a team in financial difficulties. They broke even last year and had made a profit in 2014-17, and have been stable since they floated on the stock exchange back in the late 90s. For all the stick Claire gets, she can run a team so it lives with its means, unlike, say, Force India.

No. I try to avoid a misunderstanding by asking you to provide a quote, rather than speculating what you mean.

Looks like a 19 spec FW (could be the one they tested with).

No Orlen said in their sponsor event a few days ago that they won’t be the title sponsor for Williams
