...or the route that Lotus took
I guess part of the problem is that one of the advantages they had (a wind tunnel) is now something that all teams have, and without a sponsor like Mercedes perhaps they lack the resources to get back to the top - remember when they dominated with the Honda and Renault engines they were a 'works' team, not a paying customer.
Perhaps if Toyota pull out of the sport (something they surely must be considering), but continue to back Williams we might see them at the sharp end of the grid. It has though been a decade since they last won a championship
In every step, I hear your sobbing
Dare I break the shade with one caress
Dare I trespass to lift the veil
To touch the lips so soft and frail
It may be that love comes once and once only, preceded by rehersal, followed by regret.
Know well that however right a man may be they always find the fallen one guilty.
All that is required for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing
