Williams got their point, but my post still remains valid. Dreadful seeing a team that was once so dominant now struggling to score points
A little presumptuous, but if Williams fail to score a point this season it will be the first time since 1977 the team has done that, whixh was their first season and with only one driver.
Watching Williams today compared to the 80s and 90s and early 00s, reminds of the way Tyrrell ended their history compared to their heyday with Sir Jackie.
Jacques Laffite for, um, I dunno… some French team he raced for. He only raced for two teams in his long career (retiring as the most experienced driver of all time), well actually technically three: Frank Williams Racing (a pre-cursor to Walter Wolf Racing, which went bought by Walter Wolf he kicked out the titular Frank Williams who made Williams Grand Prix Ltd in 1977), Ligier, Williams F1 proper, and then once again Ligier.
Sir Frank and Pat aren’t very impressed with Damon and Jacques’ identical crashes at Monza, 1996, which gifted the race victory to Michael Schumacher to give the Scuderia a win in front of the tifosi.
