Is Williams the new Minardi? They've lost their factory engine supplier, didn't get JB, lost their big name sponsor. This has me thinking that they could be the new Minardi unless they pull something very big out of their rear end next year. They've somehow ended up in the situation where they have to pay for everything rather than have people throwing money at them to be part of the family. Given the huge sums involved in F1, surely this is the beginning of a downward spiral as they have to start watching the budget rather than simply writing big cheques to be up the front?
