I would go for Maldonado... he is a bit crazy but Williams needs cash and some show too. A shame fo NH but still he hasnt put a great show.

@ Jaylott, Don't make me laugh... you obviously know nothing of F1... or you're out of your mind...
Look at the results... look where Williams is and who put them there. Definitely the best with the Cosi engines too...

@ Shane.I'd like to hope you're wrong,but Williams do seem to struggle at the moment.
If anything drastic did happen to the team,what's everyones opinion of what would happen?
New owner,or disappear?

Also at Jaylott,

Barrichello has always merited a place in F1, he was on his day a match for Schumacher in a Ferrari in a car designed around Schumacher. and the last few years as team mate to Button, the current world champion he was at least as good. He got the better of Button over the last half of last year so he's hardly passed it. Fact is Hulkenberg hasn't performed well this year on occasions, the last race being one of them.

i can't believe williams are actually willing to drop hulkenberg for maldonado. the hulk has been the best rookie this year by far and deserves an f1 seat, probably somewhere even better off than williams. i hope renault, force india or even lotus takes him up because he is a very talented driver who has the talent to win at this level.
