Re: It's getting harder to be a Williams fan

Can anyone else foresee an engine swap between Mclaren and Williams?

In the UK, I just noticed that if you already have Sky TV (but don't subscribe to any Sky Sports at present, like me) they are offering Sky Sports F1 channel for £10 a month, price guaranteed for two years......

That's actually very tempting.
