They had better get a door bell then. Knocking is quite vulgar and is not often heard if you are away from the front door.

It is certainly changed days from when they nearly always hand a champion driving for tem. They will have to be careful that they don't become a mid-field team that is used only feed drivers into F1. I hope they get back to their winning ways soon.

Why go to Williams?

They're only in it for the money.
Witness their attempts to get Renault power for next year! Has Frank really been watching this year?
Save an extra 2M by going french instead of German eh Frank?

You sold out by signing up unconditionally to the the pervs plans for 2010 and now you keep your distance from FOTA? What have you to lose?

I've heard that Andy Soucek from F2 is likely to get a least a test drive. I didn't think he'd be a frontrunner but Palmer's pushing hard to get someone from F2 into F1 next year and he was spotted in their motorhome at Valencia.

So, once you cut through the subjective BS the teams talk, we can assume that Weber is close to doing a deal with Hulkenberg & a different team ...

I'm sure even the 'provisional' teams hoping for that BMW spot are having their doors knocked down by prospective drivers, so Williams shouldnt think they're in such a fortunate position.

I'm disliking this team more & more after their recent actions & attitude.

I thought you knew about F1 Mr. EveilTwin!!!

Sir Frank and Patrick Head are TRUE racers! They have been in the paddock through the good and bad times and have always had their hearts as well as their innovative minds into it. In it for the money? You can't be serious! They are one of the most resourseful team in the paddock. If they where in it for the money they would have sold their team LOOOONG ago.

Mid pack as usual for anyone coming to this team. True racers allright. Frank would like you to drive for free just to have the honor to be in F1. Always finding a way to underpay and underfund the team. Running to Bernie for money means he is under the influence of the dirty two.

You do know there is a difference between "strapped for cash" and "in it for the money" right? There is no Board of Director to run to for a larger budget like the manufactures.

And he will leave Toyota for the next manufacturer that hands him a wad of cash and driver of their choice. It's a pay for team approach. He has never gotten any bigger by choice.

rob01 - you forgot to mention that the driver must give all credit for winning to the car. Top drivers used to go to Wille for a shot at the WDC which Frank didn't give a rat's about. It was always about the constructors championship. Always admired the cars from that era...didn't think much of the "leadership" however.

He worked with CHEAP Gannasi on trading Zanardi and Montoya back and forth. Cheap is known for his frugal pay scale for drivers and deal making with anyone ready to throw cash. Frank has never upped his program to the top level. But he always talks as if he has. Williams is more of an entry level team for drivers to make a name by scoring a point or two to show potential. A stepping stone team.
