Williams is no longer a second-tier team - it looks more like a Formula 2 team!

Oksana Kosachenko, the former manager of ex-F1 driver Vitaly Petrov, has slammed Formula 1 team Williams, saying that nowadays the British team look more like a Formula 2 team.

The manager of the former Renault and Caterham driver has slammed Williams, who finished rock-bottom in the F1 Constructors' Standings in 2019, scoring just the single point via Robert Kubica.

"In my opinion, the team needs a structural reorganisation," Kosachenko told Ivestia news agency. "Williams is no longer even a second-tier team - it looks more like a Formula 2 team.

"There were some absolutely illogical strategic decisions, emotional statements, and as a result, they lost a lot from the very beginning and could not catch up during the season.

"At the same time, I am absolutely confident in the talent of George Russell, and the abilities of Robert Kubica. To attribute all of their problems to the fact they could not use the potential of the car is impossible."

Williams finished rock-bottom in 2018 as well, but managed to score six more points than in 2019, with Lance Stroll scoring six of the seven points recorded, and Sergey Sirotkin achieving the other top 10 finish.
