"Maybe the effect on the Williams itself was marginal, but after 10 years development the current crop of 200bhp 'super hatches', good as they may be, weigh considerably more than a Williams 1 and can't hope to match its kart-like dynamics. To be fair to Renault Sport, the current Clio 182 in stripped out 1060kg 'cup' guise is reckoned to be about as good as new hatches get, But when road tested back to back with a Williams on good form, the older car usually still gets the nod, having driven both it certainy gets mine".

I'm going to write to evo about this matter. Maybe you should instead KS as you've had dealings with them.

I'm not happy about the 182 "arguably the best hot hatch ever" quote in the latest issue.

Until they test it back to back with the Willy how can they say that? And would it really finish 6th if they substituted it for the willy in the ten of the last decade feature?

I think not.

In the review of my car they state that the Williams has considerably better damping than the 172 cup.
