    Talk of no engine changes before 2021 , and possibly beyond .

    I can't help think the big boys are throwing their weight around . It makes me SICK !

    Don’t worry, I became a McLaren fan when Button joined.

    Always had a soft spot for them as Damon Hill was my childhood racing driver to follow.

    The Rothmans colour scheme as well :emoticon-0152-heart

    Williams BMW with Montoya might also be one of the glorious sites and sounds in F1 history, a long way from the watered down stuff we see today.

    I always felt Williams should have had a word with Honda to see if they could strike a works deal, either alone or jointly with McLaren. I do hope they recover and someone funds them properly.

    The worst part is that Williams actually have a pretty sizable budget. Staffing costs are among the highest in the grid.

    Also , as I have said before , they are a PLC ( I think the only one in F1 ) , so cant be stupid with the money as they have to think of the shareholders .
