enrico. unfortunately you do not know what connections i have, or what i worked at before i retired, but just to say that it was an investigative position which involved engineering....
if you refer to my history, you will see that i do not speculate in reference to serious matters.
however, when something has been positively ruled out, it must be removed from the area of speculation.

ty. great minds think alike, its just that mine works a little quicker than yours!
it must be pretty wild today, up there in the trossachs.

Richard, I was supposed to be driving up to Scotland today but cancelled it, partly because of the weather but mainly because I couldn't be bothered!
I might be Scottish but I've lived in the south of England for years, Scotland's far too cold for a tropical snake!

Crashes

Investigate!, Truth!, Intelligence!.

Weapons of mass Destruction.( TRUTH ?)

Get down to earth, we are all just on a social site where we will never know anything about each other, but if i was any good in the car field i would not be wasting my time it here.

i am here because i enjoy that sport , but with sh*t knowledge.

Hey Guys,

there was an interview with Adrian Newey made a year or two ago and he was saying, that by his opinion, most likely cause of Ayrton's crash was rear-tire puncture. That would explain small slide, correction and going off the track... Sad as it is :-(

@ Richard. You claim to have a quick mind, maybe too quick, referring to the Massa incident in your earlier post. My memory tells me the spring etc involved in that unpleasant incident came from a Brawn driven by Rubens Barrichello not a Williams as you highlight.
I hope your investigations in your investigative engineering position were a little more thorough than some of your posts, or maybe that's the reason for your retirement from such employment?. Maybe it's just in your head.

If I were Williams F1, i'd be out there flirting with every big name Brazilian company and my main sales pitch would be "pay for Rubens this year and next year we will take on Senna thus keeping Brazilians in F1". Williams finances are not in the best shape as everybody knows and unless their friendship with Qatar sees some serious investment quickly then they have to do what they have to and if it means selling a race seat then so be it. I dont want my team doing, i've supported them for the best part of 25 years but if it means Williams keep racing then i'll live with it. Admittedly the cash for Maldonado aint worth it but needs must.

@Munro,
A very good idea. For 2 reasons, Williams will not have a great car next year because it will take some time to sort out the new engine arrangement so they can't expect to really be a podium finisher just because they got a podium worthy engine... at least not for a while.

And without podiums, Senna as a driver of a sub-par car isn't going to get much air time which is what a sponsor wants... Of course an old driver doing his last season would get more air time even if he was in an under performing car.

So using Rubens to simply get air-time while they come to grips with the new engine would be a good choice.... they could also stick Senna in the car on Fridays to try and train him before using him later. Would seem like the best option they could hope for.... the other drivers available wouldn't have as much value sponsor wise... Sutil is just another German and any German sponsors have much better options available to put their money behind.... Brazil knows that Massa is
