Badly run Williams deserve to be in last!

Former Williams driver Jacques Villeneuve says that the team has earned their struggles this season, as he believes they have been "badly run" in recent years.

Williams have scored just one point this season and look set to finish last in the Constructors' Championship for the second season in a row, a sad decline from even a few years ago, when they finished third in the standings twice in succession, in 2014 and 2015.

Canadian Villeneuve won his world title with the team back in 1997, and says that their struggles are sad, but deserved.

He said on Italian TV: "What I find sad is how the team has been managed in recent years. But given the management it's no surprise where they are now. It makes sense. I think it's somehow justified that it's so bad now.

"It would be a shame if a team with such a name and glorious past would be successful, even though it is so badly run. They deserve it."
