In a recent press statement, Harry Westwood has slammed the team principal Jamie Franklin for his treatment of an issue in the Chinese V-Prix this weekend.
The midfield team boss had this to say;
"Listen, Ruiz is arguably one of the best drivers on the grid, and Franklin, love them or hate them, are a highly efficient team that have fought for the championship every year they've competed, for a fifth season now. It's why I was so disappointed to find Jamie and Enrique hiding behind a 'gearbox issue', Ruiz simply made a mistake and the car was showing no signs of struggling prior to Ruiz's mistake. It was his mistake, and he needs to own that mistake. The best drivers always look to better themselves, not shift the blame. As for Jamie, well. He's the principal of the most successful team in FV history. We've seen him display a cut throat attitude toward Jochem, a young talent himself, after just two bad performances, yet is happy to create excuses for Ruiz. I believe Franklin are talking a pile of bull****, and it's quite disappointing to see. Both Jamie and Enrique should be working on what Ruiz did wrong, not cowering behind made up excuses."
