I hope Hulk finally gets his chance at a podium.

And I hope it's not robbed from him if Racing Point get DQ'd after protest!!!

Saward is Russells biggest fanboy. RP confirmed that they didn't even considered Russell as a replacement for Perez.

It didn't really make sense for anyone to pay (otherwise why would Williams release Russell from a valid contract?) in order to get a relatively inexperienced and unproven driver just for 2 or so races.

Formula 1 tyre supplier Pirelli says the failures suffered by three cars near the end of the British Grand Prix were caused by "extremely long use" on a demanding circuit.

From a Williams fan's perspective, two "somewhat" significant stories:

Racing Point docked points after Renault wins protest

FIA plans to outlaw Racing Point-style clones for F1 2021

Comment from Claire Williams: "You know, as a team that has always been very proud to protect the DNA of this sport we're a firm believer that the list of listed parts should be protected and teams should be manufacturing and designing the performance related parts on their race cars. That's what differentiates teams. That's what makes teams successful in this sport. And so we must do everything we can to protect it." (Youtube link)

I think the point is that RP are just putting the middle finger up to the sport. The reason we love this sport is that we have teams who are trying to beat each other. RP just seems fake. I have no interest in it. Mercedes is a phenomenon but these things never last forever. Like the kid who copies another's exam paper. I'm sure every team could do a deal and copy the fastest car. Haas did. F1 needs to decide whether it wants customer cars or not. TBH, I can see RP's point too. They had no intention to break the regulations.

What the sport needs is proper leadership.
