Quote from Sam Michael
Of all the finger pointing, maybe our boy Sam Michael needs to go under the microscope....
"We made a bad judgement with the brake cooling, which ultimately forced Juan to retire and Ralf to be on the limit with his brakes for the whole race," chief operations engineer Sam Michael admitted later.
Sweet GEEESUZZZ how much testing have we done at this track and you don't know what brake cooling should be....DUH!!!
If it's nor a Williams transmission, it's their brakes!!!!
BMW engine as reported on Speed is pushing 925HP+ can Williams do their part?????
Can JPM repeat at Monaco???? and turn the season around???

Re: what and ruin MS\' perfect season?
Well, in 1992 Mansel's 5-win streak was stopped in Monaco. If there is a track on the schedule where previous race results don't mean much, that one is it.
The only hope for competition this year is if Michelin has retained some of the mechanical grip superiority it established last year. All the races so far (and especially the last two) have been on circuits that favor aerodynamic grip over mechanical. Monaco is the opposite.
Another thing about Monaco is that he who leads out of the first corner is he who wins the race. If anyone has a shot at Ferrari, it is Renault at Monaco, with their excellent chassis balance and unbelievable launch out of the hole. If the Michelins are strong and Trulli or Alonzo can get on the front row, they'll win the race to turn one, and they might pull out a win overall.
Of course, in 1992 Mansel was stopped by Senna. Trulli and Alonso are not in that class.
I'm not seeing much hope for Williams right now.
As for McLaren, 5 races and 5 points !? At the end of the Spanish GP both cars were running full-out with no mechanical issues and they weren't even fast enough to break into the points. Wow.
