Yes Great stuff Fred

Stop Schumi from testing, threaten to use KERS in 2010 when all teams agreed between themselves not to, Pander to Max's millions during the height of the FOTA vs FIA
war and turn their back on the other teams(turncoat), Threaten to veto Sauber's return in 2010 due to "logistics" (more like money!) forgetting about the 500+ workers who will lose their jobs due to uncle Frank's objections.

He definatley drinks Horlicks!

Great news!

Frank is not stupid, and will do what he wants. He will not pander to a manufacturer, sponsor or driver! He will do what is right for HIS company and that for 2010 is a Cosworth engine. All the best of luck to you!!

JET - Get over it, Max has gone, and don't believe all you read. The people who write these stories live a charmed life with free hand outs from teams and sponsors. They are biased with their stories!!

Get over it that Frank puts his team ahead of F1's general health? not for 1 second will I.

If he is so stupid as to put all his eggs in the F1 basket it leaves him no other choice but to act like the fools they have been over the last year. Lets face it without a manufacturer these guys are screwed!

So much could have been agreed had Williams stayed withing the FOTA ranks. Their actions led to a split which meant agreement could not be unanimous. The reason wasnt sporting or F1 related...IT WAS MONEY!

How very sporting.....
And should they win with the Cosworth engine, I predict the informed fans will switch off, given the unfair advantages given to cosworth.(cont'd)

Auch Well another fruitless season for the Williams team..not inspired for one second over this news. I wish the Audi bosses would take a gamble and get involved in F1 and Williams as the team they do it with - nothing more than wishful thinking though

F1 fair with mosley and Todt running the show....hardly likely !

Was Renault getting off so lightly fair, hamilton's penalty in Spa 2008 etc etc.

what you overlook Jet is that cosworth have also lost years of f1 experience with their absence. i think one of two things will happen next year... they will be on the pace and experience regular unreliability or they will be bulletproof and relatively slow.

as for williams, they seem to me to be an aging team in serious need of new blood and a change in design philosophy. cant see them doing any better next year than they did this.

Jet - Do you really think that the Mercedes have sat still with their F1 engine for the last 3 years?

They have spent millions and millions for a so called homologated engine, making more power, enabling it to run leaner and so not using as much fuel (=weight)

Frank has been all nice and said that he wasn't bossed around by Toyota! a certain crap japanese driver makes that rubbish???

And as for sticking with FOTA. Do me a favour! They are in F1 to make a living and everyone knows that there was never going to be a FOTA F1 series, if you believe that, maybe you should change your name to JohnsonsStupidTwin??

theres only one reason williams is going to run cosworth engines and that is because the fia have given cosworth permission to re-tune the engines in line with merc etc but i dare bet it may be faster and more economical on fuel now refulling is banned for 2010
