Current Williams

Latifi has been confirmed at Williams for 2020. As much I want to see the name Williams back to its glory days. I think Claire Williams needs to step down if Williams have another season like this year.

Frank is still the major share holder, I suspect nothing will change until he shuffles off this mortal coil.

Il_leone - the removal of Paddy Lowe may well have some (positive) impacts on the team. Williams are in the painful process of restructuring, and changing their overall policies - much like McLaren did two or three years ago. they probably need a different MD, but you can believe that Patrick Head will have been kicking butt!

Well, first they need money. F1 is pay to play. So of course, Stroll and Latifi makes perfect sense. That is not Williams' problem. Their problem is a lack of money. Williams was a back-marker team until Frank Williams suddenly found some Saudi money. Then it became a front running team. When BMW dropped them....they were again left without money...and their performance again dropped.

Look at the Haas team. Finished 9th in the championship. Gunther Steiner is certainly a proven and capable manager. Haas is a self-made multi-millionaire. Grosjean and Magnussen are not paying drivers. Yet...they are 9th in the championship. Why? Well, they are doing it on the cheap. If they want to do better they need more money.

I don't know if Claire Williams is a good, bad or mediocre manager. Her father, when he did not have any budget, was kind of considered a joke in F1. Then he got some money and suddenly became one of the 4 or 5 most successful team owners in F1 history. So.......replace Claire Williams? This is really only useful if it was for someone that can get lots of budget or someone like Lawrence Stroll.
