The times suggests he was not way in front of Lance Stroll's times nor he was faster than Sirotkin when the fuel and tyre corrected were put into consideration
He won't be faster than Stroll though. Like in every series he's been in Lance will take it up a notch in his second season. Of course taking it up a notch in a Williams will mean 13th place or something which, whilst everyone is still under the delusion that Williams are a top F1 team and he has and under rated pay driver as a team mate, won't be good enough to stop everyone saying he's crap.
How will we judge that without Massa and with a new car in 2018? Judging from his times alone, Stroll didn't develop thorughout the season at all.
Edit - actually if you'd read my post you'd have seen I stated no one would be able to tell.
. This is getting ridiculous
It seems Martini might not be as influential within the team. Are Williams going to be sold to the Russians one day because I just can't see them progressing back to the front with the team make up they have now
without wanting to take this down the budget cap route. i don't know why fans are so surprised or upset that Williams are taking pay drivers, I don't blame them 1 bit. this has been happening for years now because so obvious to me, couldnt believe their are so many blind or naive f1 fans on the facebook page, because until the unsustainable budgets are reduced by least 50% + this will keep happening just look at gp2 lost count of talented drivers who won the title or top3 who hit a glass ceiling because they don't have sponsorship. a budget cap has been needed for at least 5 years because f1 has become far too expensive. I did some research if you combine constructors top 3 budgets. you will get around to a billion dollars just for 20 races. that comes to around 10m dollars per session, thats before you talk about the other 7 teams budget like haas who have spent $120m to finished 7th in constructors
Sam Bird reckons he has no chance of getting into F1 as every driver needs a 15m a year budget at least.
Williams situation is a sad state of affairs given we are talking one of the most iconic teams of F1 - still 3rd I think in the all time race wins list so to be reduced to this sorry situation is really a sad to see
