  1. I hope Williams get there money although I can’t help but think they’re in a long queue…

    1. Same. The money to pay back all creditors just simply doesn’t exist. I was listening to a radio discussion last week about the rights of English local authorities to pursue the money they’re owed. Given some of the stakeholders involved, I’d imagine that Williams are closer to the bottom of the list of creditors than the top.

    2. Same here,it’s a historic privateer team,so it’s important they get their money.

  2. Off topic, but “Jackie Stewart: The Flying Scot” is on tonight(21st) on BBC4 at 11pm. Worth a watch.
