Sve mi ide u glavu, ali da je trenutno Sauber, koji je bio u raspadu prije 1/2 godine bolji od Willims-a, sa Merc motorom, znacajnim pojacanjem u tehnickom odjelu, iskustvom, opremom... nikako!

I Zauber i Has su dobili znacajnu injekciju iz Ferarija, ne samo finansijsku nego i know-how (Has mnogo vise nego Zauber). Izmedju Mercedesovog i Ferarijevog motora razlike su danas svakako minimalne tako da to nije toliko bitan faktor ovde.

 

A u Vilijamsu su zestoko omasili, isli su na radikalan dizajn pod geslom il' pukovnik il' pokojnik, pa ispalo ovo drugo.

Nejasan mi je covek. Univerzalno priznat kao drugo najvece ime u F1 medju inzenjerima nakon Njuia. Napravi cudo sa Mercedesom. Napusti ga. Predje u Vilijams. I sad trpi ribanje od Strolovog caleta. Jedna od najcudnijih prica u ovom sportu poslednjih godina.

Malo sutra napravio ON cudo sa Mercedesom. Napravio je TIM, u kojem je i on bio, cudo sa Mercedesom. Dupe i oko. Ovde dolazimo do one price 2 glave misle bolje od jedne, 3 od 2 itd. Mercedes je korporacija. Sa svim svojim manama, ali u ovom slucaju, skill matrix je nesto sto ce prvo postaviti pa tek graditi tim. Odlaskom nisu previse izgubili, a on nije odneo previse konkurenciji. Sam, nece uciniti nista. Prosla su vremena kada jedan covek napravi drasticnu razliku. Cak i Njui to priznao u svojoj auto-biografiji. Nema vise magije u aerodinamici i jedne zvrcke koja napravi prednost od sekunde. Okviri pravila su previse zbijeni. Sada su neki novi momenti, jure se nijanse, ili se ceka nova specifikacija, a to samo tim sa suludim ulaganjima moze da isprati.

Ne zelim da verujem da si moj post protumacio na nacin da ja mislim da je Pedi Lou sam zasluzan za uspeh Mercedesa. Ali, nazalost izgleda da jesi. On je bio sef tima zaduzen za sasiju koja je 2, a mozda i 3 godine bila najbolja u F1. Pored i dalje aktivnog Njuia. Ekipa koja radi PU na celu sa Endijem Kauelom je jos vise zasluzna za uspehe Mercedesa, ali je sasija takodje bila najbolja na gridu.

A to da nisu previse izgubili.. Mozda nisu, mozda jesu. U svakom slucaju, bila to slucajnost ili ne, njegovim odlaskom iz tima smo u prvoj sezoni dobili situaciju da neko moze da izazove Mercedes, a u drugoj nakon njegovog odlaska nemaju pobedu u prve dve trke.

To nije ni bila poenta mog posta, vec da mi nije jasno zasto je, uz duzno postovanje Vilijasu, narodski receno presao sa konja na magarca i doveo sebe u situaciju da ga riba cale jednog vozaca koji ne bi ni imao mesto u F1 da taj isti cale nema 3 milijarde dolara. Novac? Ne znam, moguce je, ali radi se o timu koji mora da ima dva vozaca koji placaju za sediste da bi opstao na gridu.

Dobro Ferrarijev motor i pomoc, ali su gori i od Honde i Renault motora timova dok oni guraju Merc, to je bila poenta, a posebno Sauber koji se, bez obzira na Ferrari, za 6 mjeseci ne moze oporaviti. Plus oni su ugledna tehnoloska firma, oprema, iskustvo, ljudstvo...

 

Uzasan promasaj to je jedino objasnjenje, mada to je vec pocelo nakon 2015. kada su bili TRECI od tada strmoglavo nanize. Nesto mi to mirise na odsustvo Frank-a i prisustvo Claire.

“Williams will close” if F1 doesn’t cap budgets in 2021
2018 F1 season

18th April 2018, 9:15
Dieter Rencken / Keith Collantine


Liberty Media has been urged by one of the sport’s longest-running teams not to back down from plans to introduce a budget cap to F1 in 2021.

Williams deputy team principal Claire Williams has praised the proposals from F1’s commercial rights holders which includes a $150 million cap on budgets from 2021.

However in an exclusive interview for RaceFans following the announcement Williams revealed some in F1 are strongly against the proposal and made it clear how urgently she believes change is needed.

“If I look at it from my perspective, if we don’t do this, then Williams will close, the whole of the company,” said Williams.

She said the team was “lucky” the cap is expected to be a set at a level which means Williams will not have to cut its budget.

“[In Bahrain] I was very positive about it, but then there are some of the people that are very negative about it. We are lucky that this works for us, but it think it probably demonstrates the fact that our team, track performance aside, is a good model of how a Formula One team should be operating in our sport.”

While a budget cap is likely to require larger teams to reduce their staff numbers, Williams stands by the plan.

“I don’t know the exact numbers and yes, of course it’s going to be difficult for teams to restructure and reorganise, and yes, of course the thought of anybody losing their job as a result is not something we welcome in any way, shape or form.

“It pains me to say, but sometimes you have to look at the bigger picture for the sake of the sport.”

Jbg Meklaren, Reno i Has. Ukloni njih iz jednacine i eto ti bodova za Vilijams i Fors isto kao prosle sezone.

 

Plus jos ona prica o Mercedesu koji musterijama isporucuje motore drugacije specifikacije.

Lowe eyes 'rapid progress' for Williams
Friday, 20 April 2018

Paddy Lowe says Williams wants to make "rapid progress" during the first half of the season to challenge for points on a regular basis.

Having been fifth in the constructors' championship last season, Williams has struggled so far in 2018 and is the only team yet to pick up a point in the opening three races. That statistic highlights how competitive the midfield is, but Williams has often been fighting with Sauber to avoid the tag of the slowest team each weekend, and chief technical officer Lowe says work has already begun to try and make obvious improvements.

"I wouldn't say that there has been a lot of depression, because that is not the way to dig yourself out of a situation," Lowe said. "It is about going away, analyzing and understanding where you are. Then understanding what you have to do. And focusing the organization around that. Which is exactly what we are doing because we are not where we hoped to be and intend to be in terms of competition. But it is of our own making.

"Clearly what we have done has not been good enough. We made some small parts of that plan already deployed within [the China weekend] in terms of tests and evaluations of stuff we did, which gave us a lot of information, a lot of data, and including some improvements. So it may be not all that noticeable, but there is some small progress in the car that we were running in qualifying.

"Based on P3 performance, there was some hope we might get at least one of the cars into Q2. We narrowly missed that. But there is a sense of optimism already that we can make solid progress and rapid progress. We have already started down that road.

"I couldn't put a time frame on that. It is all work in progress. It is a wide statement but we are absolutely not content with our current position within this season, so we want to make some substantial progress within this season, indeed within this first half season."

Williams announced its 2017 annual results on Friday morning, with group revenue dropping slightly from £167.4m ($235.6m) to £166.2m ($233.9m), while its earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) dropped from £15.5m ($21.8m) to £10.8m ($15.2m).

However, the F1 business generated £125.6m ($176.8m) in revenue in 2017 – up from £116.7m ($164.2m) last year – with EBITDA rising from £12.4m ($17.5m) to £16.0m ($22.5m).

Kad imaš 0 i dobiješ 1 to i jeste rapid progress.

Stroll’s father wants Williams to ‘do a Haas’ with Mercedes
2018 F1 season
3rd May 2018, 15:06
Dieter Rencken / Keith Collantine


Lance Stroll’s father Lawrence wants Williams and Mercedes to adopt a Haas/Ferrari-style model but denied he has offered to pay for it.

Haas sources its power unit, gearbox, rear suspension and other components from Ferrari. Stroll told RaceFans it makes sense for Williams to pursue a similar arrangement with Mercedes, whose engines it already uses.

However the fashion magnate, whose wealth is estimated at several billion dollars, dismissed rumours he has offered to fund a Haas-type deal between Mercedes and Williams.

Stroll said he “tried to persuade [the team] to go that route, but I’m not about to buy them anything from Toto [Wolff, Mercedes Motorsport executive director].”

In response to a question from RaceFans in Baku, Wolff said the team now has the “capacity” to follow the Haas model with Williams or fellow engine customer Force India in 2019.

“I think we have seen that the system between Ferrari and Haas has worked for both,” said Wolff. “It’s an interesting revenue filler for Ferrari and I think in terms of synergies there is a lot you can work on.

“And it has functioned for Haas. They are a very competitive team without having built on a legacy, or without having built on know-how that would have taken years and years to collect.

“So far the system is very successful and of course our thinking goes in that direction, whether it is Williams or Force India to collaborate. But we are in the middle of a tough fight for this 2018 championship, so we need to prioritise.”

Rumours Williams might pursue a closer relationship with Mercedes first surfaced last year. But deputy team principal Claire Williams told RaceFans last month the team is “proud” to be a constructor and said she is unwilling to pursue the Haas route.

“The model that Haas have, the model that Force India have to a lesser degree, is not something that we subscribe to at Williams. We certainly haven’t in the past. We feel we are a whole constructor, a holistic constructor. We’re very proud of the fact that we design, build and develop our race cars fully in-house. Very, very little is out-sourced.

“Whether that’s a relevant approach in this day and age under the operating circumstances that we find ourselves in in Formula One at the moment, maybe it’s not. But that’s where we are at the moment, and so that’s what we have to work with.”

 

Jbt sta je ovaj umislio, da vodi tim? I to jos da neko drugi placa racune... :ajme:
