Clare spent several years shadowing Frank as well as doing her own job. I can recall seeing her about for the best part of a decade, 5 years at the pit management position.
in other words, despite shadowing frank, 5 years at pit management,
and she still makes a mess of it and has either brought Williams to the bottom of the pit,
has either not done enough to keep Williams out of the bottom of the pit, or has not done
enough to get williams back from a previous slum to get it back on it's feet.
in all cases, it testifies her incompetence.
eric bouillier for example has been dumped in much shorter time. so has whitmarsh.
the only other person that has been left at at the helm of a team, despite having incompetance written all over them from day 1, all the way through embarassing years of failure, empty promises, and turning a former respectable team into plum-last hole of sadness has been - ironically - another woman, Kaltenborn.
All it took was to remove those incompetent people from their jobs, and in absolute no-time the team boosts right back up, lifted morale, happy workers, good spirit, and dusting off the former sorrowness to show new shine, new capacities, all thanks to not just qualified, but competent
one thing is clear as day; claire williams is NOT competent
for the job she has. as such, the whole team goes down. the solution is, in all reality, very simple. remove the incompetence, and replace it with somebody competent
Claire may be fantastic pr-person, absolutely great person, but she is NOT fit for the job.
I'd actually like to see paddy lowe take her position. I think he'd do a much better job at that. He may not be the most convincing and charismatic person when a camera is slammed into his face, and despite i don't think he is some sort of wonder-doctor, he understands f1, he understands how a team works.
ditch claire. ditch sirotkin. upgrade paddy's position, hire some more competent people, out with the old approach, in with the modern and new, fresh views, give kubica a race car, lift the ban on villeneuve, and for the love of god, DON't give your employees chocolate treats for doing a good job.
btw, i'm far from saying jonathan would have been the right man for the job. not at all.
hell, nobody in the williams family would have done a good job in running williams, the only guy that ran williams right was Frank himself when he was still physically capable. every king has it's reign, his is over. it doesn't run in the family though. Patrick Head is also sorely missed imho.
The only reason Williams had a 'reboot' was because of Toto's involvement a couple of years ago. Which just shows how a difference qualified, capable people make. He wasn't even in charge there, his indirect involvement including Mercedes' benefits, obviously through both Susie Wolff and Valterri Bottas, made a world of difference.
Wolff sold his stake in Williams, Susie out, Bottas gone and look what pathetic misery the team is again.
Ditching Massa for Sirotkin was the final nail in the coffin.
With the way they run the team, they deserve drivers like sirotkin, and being dead last. They deserve drivers like friggin ericsson or guiterrez. it's heart-breaking and sad as hell knowing this once was that legendary team that used to be 'the place to be'. Whatever man. Too ignorant to learn. Too easily triggered over nothing. Yeah, Williams 2018 is literally Claire Williams' transformer shape.
