Gone are the days when pure racing teams have a proper chance in F1. Even McLaren produce road cars nowadays.

Ironically, the only team that they joked about (an energy drinks company) is probably the only one of the top teams that doesn't make road cars!!!

Hopefully he might get some FP1 sessions.

I was still hoping against hope that Kubica would get it, but that was the romantic inside me!

Good luck Sergey

With Sirotkin being signed, Stroll can breathe a sigh of relief. But you never know how Sirotkin performs. Somehow Williams have worked around the Martini rule of either driver being above 25 years of age.

Well, if they sign Kubica as a reserve driver/model for the drinking campaign then they are sorted. Model being a loose term here, as he is not famous for his looks!

I thought that Sirotkin was quicker than Kubica in the tests?

Can I change the topic title to "Williams uninspiring driver line up for 2018" now then?

for williams sake i hope that sergey thoroughly outperforms stroll to at least massa level. at least then they will know they have at least one half decent driver. if not you are looking at 2 drivers that are probably 6-8 tenths off the best. maybe more at some tracks and less at others, but that is a lot of car development to try and negate those losses.
