Ralf Schumacher: Claire and Frank Williams should resign

Ralf Schumacher is in-between hazards in 1999 and 2004 for Williams formula 1 and has won all six of the victories of his Grand Prix career for the British tradition team. Well 15 years later he does not spare criticism to the Williams family, the majority of which is in his opinion for the sporting and the economic decline of the former success of team and self-responsible.

"Neither Frank was able to continue with the Team in a modern sense, and his daughter. Because there is much wrong in the style of leadership," analyzes the 44-Year-old in an Interview with 'Sky'. In his opinion, both would make for years out of the way and young staff to the Management to convey: "in my view, Williams has missed the Jump a long time ago."

"I have witnessed myself," says Schumacher. "Times have changed, people have become different." A Management "from the top down and with a lot of pressure, that was working Frank's System", is no longer timely. "That's a lot of young, educated people are now, which are only briefly in the formula 1. The just don't so deal with it."

Schumacher: "a Great opportunity" when new staff comes

The planned strategic realignment of the team, he is rated as a "great opportunity, when Frank and Claire pull up to 100 percent and a good Investor is coming from. Because the Team is great. If I had the money and the Partner, I'd do it immediately! The conditions that has Williams, are perfect. It just needs to be dusted out."

"Fresh capital," says Schumacher, is "very important", but by far not all of it. He pleads for a fresh start with new management personnel. That Williams seeks help in the financial market, not happen finally, for the first Time. Toto Wolff has already invested in the Williams, and later the US businessman Brad Hollinger, last post Michael Latifi.

Latifi, whose son, Nicholas, Williams formula 1, is actually a Shareholder in McLaren. In April, it was known, however, that he loaned Williams money. A total of 45 million US-dollars flowed in the transaction to the Team. How much of it has borrowed Latifi Williams has and how much the HSBC Bank, is beyond however, to our knowledge.

Latifi, Stroller, Masepin #AND# co.: blessing or curse?

As a security for the loan were offered to the businessman, the historic Williams-Boliden. The Team should not be able to repay the money, would switch to the over 100 vehicles to the owners. The sale would be one of the most spectacular racing car collections of all time to a private person.

in addition to Latifi Schumacher locates one that could help Williams maybe: Dmitry Masepin standing "in the wings", he believes, and to be "significantly wealthier than all of the two of them together. Also looking for a Team, and also bought up to now all the Teams for his son, from formula 3 upwards."

The emergence of the "billionaire Daddy" as Lawrence Stroll many of the formula 1 criticize purists. Schumacher not: "I can't criticize it. I'm glad that there are people who appreciate our Sport and love and are ready to invest so much money, and it was for their children," he says in an Interview with 'Sky'.
