"Work is progressing well on the FW34 and we continue to meet both our key performance, development and production targets"

Hmmm...heard similar sponsor friendly rhetoric last year, hopefully they turn the corner as it's getting painful to watch.

It appears that the bean counters are rooting out all remnants of racing dna from Williams and replacing it with . . . bean counters, good luck to Patrick and his future endeavors, the F1 team though is going down the pan!

I am sad to see one of the legends of F1 leave. Seems that as PH took further steps back in daily ops, the team has taken further steps back as well. Williams will be hard press to find someone as good as PH's spot, but I hope that MC will be able to design a decent car for next year. I would like to see Williams back fighting for points on a regular basis, if not a few podiums next year would do the team good and I think a reasonable goal. Hopefully fight for wins in 2013.

Nobody goes on forever. They have to make the big changes now. He seems happy cos he knows they just dont have the funds to complete with the 200million plus teams.

Oh come on. Teams have their ups and downs. After all only one team can win each year. Ferrari had a huge drought before the Schumacher years, then they dominated, now they've fallen behind. I think Williams can come through still, but it will take a lot of dedication and hard work.
