Why Williams' sale marks the end of an era for Formula 1
By:

News that Formula 1's last independent team has been acquired by a US-based investment firm isn't only a seminal moment in Williams's history, but for F1 too. Romanticism aside, it's a good move for the team's finances and competitive prospects.

Good news surrounding Williams has been rather hard to come by in Formula 1 over the past few years.

Since slumping to the bottom of the pecking order in 2018 and enduring its 'annus horribilis' last year, when delays in the car build left it a long way adrift from the rest of the field, Williams looked nothing like the team that once claimed five constructors' titles in six years.
