Does Toto lend out Ocon to these guys? If I were him, I would, in the hopes that Ocon would do more to hurt the Ferraris, assuming Toto feels confident Mercedes can stay ahead of RBR and Ferrari throughout the season.
Damage to the Williams after impacting manhole cover.

~6 months ago I hit a dislodged manhole cover in a severe rainstorm at maybe 35mph and blew out both left side tires, cracked a wheel and banged up the underside of my Audi.
16-17 years ago I ran over a dislodged manhole cover at 70mph on a highway and it "cut" the fuel line and a whole bunch of other stuff on the underside of my Taurus SHO, car stalled out in a lot of traffic and I had a lucky split second to nurse it over onto the shoulder with no power steering, brakes, throttle, nothing.
Ask me what I think of manhole covers...
