Whilst having two inexperienced drivers certainly does not help matters I
think that Williams’ problem is more fundamental than that. It’s clear that
there is a serious flaw in the design and I doubt that Massa or Raikkonen
could help much with that, apart perhaps from being able to describe the
symptoms more accurately.
Personally I think that this is the moment for Kimi to retire
(definitively). His near-pole lap at Silverstone showed that he is still
one of the best drivers in the world and it would be better to quit whilst
still at the top surely? Michael Schumacher tarnished his reputation
slightly as a result of an ill-conceived comeback attempt and Kimi can’t
need the money!
