Australian GP: Williams Racing completes difficult race
The results for the 2019 Australian GP would see both ROKiT Williams racing cars finish last in the order. It was a difficult but expected result. George Russell would have an unevetful race finshing in 16th but for team-mate Robert Kubica his race was hampered by an incident at the start. He would make contact with another car seeing him lose his front wing forcing him to make an earlier than expected pit stop. He would also suffer damage to his car which would also have an impact on his race. He would finish in 17th. The team now has two weeks in which to try and start to get to grips with the performance of the FW42.
For all of their European progress, albeit against mediocre opposition, Chelsea's domestic woes continue. Having struggled to score last week against Wolverhampton Wanderers, today's team in yellow totally failed to score a single goal, for the eleventh time this ragged season. I can't quite make my mind up as to whether it's the team that is awful or the manager that is awful or those who recruited them that are awful. Either way, this team is way too lightweight for a league campaign. They looked clueless and bereft of inspiration in the second half, having failed to cash in on their first half dominance. What is most alarming is that Chelsea seem incapable of responding well after having played a European match a few days earlier. Also, Gonzalo Higuain looks the latest in a depressingly growing list of toothless centre forwards. We were so ordinary today, we succeeded in making Evercrap look good.

Australian GP: Difficult qualifying for Williams Racing
Qualifing for the 2019 Australian GP would be a continuation of the earlier practice sessions for the ROKiT Williams racing team. George Russell would finish ahead of Robert Kubica but the pair were still slowest being 19th and 20th. The session would see George improve on his three runs on the soft tyre in the opening period but it was not as easy for Robert. Robert would make contact with the wall puncturing his right rear wheel seeing his last run ending up with him taking to the grass on the way to his pit with a flat tyre. Both drivers were inside the 107% rule so will start Sunday's race.
Australian GP: FP3 Russell ahead of Kubica
The final practice session for thew 2019 Australian GP would see the ROKiT Williams Racing team again finish slowest in the times. George Russell would finish ahead of team-mate Robert Kubica after their qualifying simulations. It was still a frustrating session made even harder when Robert was to make a mistake entering the pit lane hitting the wall with his front left wheel. But the session continued to support the view that the performances from George this weekend are impressive to say the least in what is a very difficult car. Netx session quaifying.
Australian GP: FP2 and no change for Williams Racing
The second Friday practice session for the 2019 Australian GP would see no chnage in the situation for ROKiT Williams Racing. George Russell and Robert Kubica would finish 19th and 20th. Both drivers would complete soft tyre runs early in the session followed by a split strategy for the longer runs late in the session with George using the medium tyre and Robert the hard. Both drivers would admit that there are issues but George was confident that the car is a good base for development.
Australian GP: FP1 Williams Racing where you would expect
The opening Friday practice session of the 2019 Australian GP for the ROKiT Williams racing team would see both drivers finish at the bottom of the times. Robert Kubica was 19th and George Russell 20th. Both drivers would set their times on the medium tyre while those in front were on the soft tyre. It was pretty much when you would expect them to be after their testing performances. But both drivers would continually improve during the session but the gap to the cars in front is still something that must come down. The only issue in the session was when George was told to stop before he left the pit lane seeing him having to be recovered by his mechanics. His issue has yet to be confirmed.
Demolition In Kiev
Whilst their domestic campaigns have faltered all winter, the one beacon of hope for Chelsea appears to be the Europa League. Here they can do no wrong. Even Olivier Giroud can't stop scoring. Young Hudson-Odoi keeps scoring too. Most surprising of all, the team seems to have reinvented itself as a free-scoring unit (in the absence of talisman Hazard) at least for the one-sided double header against poor Dinamo Kiev. Now the London giants must try and repeat the trick against Slavia Prague in the quarter finals. I suspect that they will be less of a pushover than the Ukrainian punch bag proved to be. Maybe just maybe Chelsea can rescue themselves and their beleaguered manager from an otherwise underwhelming season.
