The Williams Week 2021


A round-up of interesting Williams related stories found on the web this week:

“Yes. If it would have been an easy decision we would have made it earlier as we know what we have with Valtteri and we know what we have with George, and both of them deserve being looked after in the best possible way as both of them are part of the family and we hold them up high.” – Toto Wolff

Russell or Bottas? Wolff says Mercedes have decided who will partner Hamilton in 2022

“It worked out very well. He obviously had pretty good track position. So it all just came together nicely.” – Dave Robson

‘A podium is a podium’ – Capito thrilled with Williams’ first top 3 result since 2017, despite bizarre circumstances

“In our position we’ve got to take it how it comes. We’re not often rewarded for a good qualifying and today, I guess, we were. And it would have been incredibly hard to keep hold of that P2.” – George Russell

After Russell stole the show at Spa, can there be any doubt he’s ready for next step?

Spa F1 points haul could let Williams try ‘extreme’ experiments
