Williams as a stock company must answer to their shareholders on why Bottas is driving FP1. It goes against the interest of the team while benefiting the family of 1 shareholder. If you got any Williams stock you have the right to get answers and we should all do just that! Bottas ran the FP1 in dry for what purpose? What will that help the team and all it's shareholders? Bruno will go into Saturday with not even a single minute of dry drive. The team was pretty much downhill until they went public but Williams are losing money with this nonsense of Bottas driving FP1. NO personal interests should be put before the interest of Williams F1 which is not the case right now and they have compromised the whole year and in special this race results putting personal interests before Williams F1 period.

"Senna failed to match his team-mate's pace as he struggled to adapt to the changing conditions and missed out on some valuable track time, leaving him sixteenth.

However, the Brazilian, who only ran in second practice, remains hopeful of a strong weekend."

Clearly Williams are hurting themselves favoring a driver with not even GP2 experience i.e. Bottas taking the car and extreme important track time from the driver who will eventually fight for them for points during the weekend.

I really hope when contracts are up for discussion that this will not hinder Senna. IMHO Senna would be doing as good of a job as PM (be it when he doesn't crash or pull stupid stunts on tract) if he had FP1 to run as well, if not better than PM. While PM did win Barcelona, his inconsistency and erratic behavior on track seem more a liability than an asset to the team.
