That's the risk you take when you have paying drivers... Williams should have focused its efforts on finding proper sponsors for the team rather than the drivers bringing the money in. When you think about where the team was 10 years ago and where it is now you can clearly see that something went terribly wrong along the way...

Maldonado to a top team like Lotus while Hulkenberg is on the market ... HA HA HA HA!!! Not even Eric Boullier would make THAT bad a decision. Actually, Hulkenberg doesn't have to be on the market for that to still be a laughable proposition.

I say good riddance. He fluked one win and has done absolutely nothing since - he can't even make the points if he isn't ramming other cars out of the way (and I'm not just talking about 2013). There is genuine talent waiting in the wings while this guy takes up space. For heaven's sake Sir Frank, sort out the finances and get back up the front with some quality drivers.

As good as his performance at Spain last year was, he wins one race and thinks he's one of the best drivers out on track. Will not miss this arrogant fool if he isn't around in 2014, sorry!

strider. could it be that YOU are the arrogant fool? maldo may not be setting the world alight, but at least he has won a gp, something that most of the grid have not been able to do!

by your reckoning, there should be only a half a dozen on the grid next year

what is your claim to fame?
