What he said. As much as I respect Sir Frank Williams, I think BMW made the right decision to pull out. The German-British allaince would not do any good to either party had it continued. Both are great teams, but they are just one of those things that you can't mix up.
I somehow feel sorry for Williams. Having both engine supplier and major sponsor (HP) pulling out at the same time must be hard on an independent team like Williams. I don't think it will be long until we see Frank Williams selling his team.
