  • Wizzo: Yes the gallery does not inform the admin when a new picture is posted so we either have to check everyday or its just easier when you post a picture to let one of us know. Yours has been approved.

It Looks Like Williams Will Go With Sirotkin
« on: December 12, 2017, 03:52:35 PM »

  • Reports are that Williams will tap Russian driver Sergey Sirotkin to replace Felipe Massa.

    Williams has many reasons to pick the Russian over Robert Kubica. 20 million reasons to be exact. Sirotkin brings $20 million in SMP Racing money with him. The Torpedo (Kvyat) is said to be second choice.

    Too bad. I'd love to see what Robert can do.

  • I too would have loved to see Kubica in a Williams.

    Hopefully if any teams are disappointed in their line up in early 2018, they'll see Kubica as an able and practised replacement.

    Otherwise, I'd like to see Kubica try the Indy 500

  • I think Williams HQ are already feeling the pressure in their driver line-up for 2018.   Of course, we know that both Stroll and Serotkin are "money market" investments, but early signs would suggest that Kubica has better pace than both race seat drivers. 

    On top of that, could Williams fall into mid field OR WORSE!! in the season ahead?

    All the best,
    Cal :)

    I suppose the question is would Kubica get Williams more points? If Kubica can get solid 11th place finishes, then it's not really a big deal if Stroll and Sirotkin are cruising around in 13th.  Why get a top driver if you don't have a top car?

  • I wonder if world events could force Williams to change drivers in the not too distant future.  It could be complicated for the team to accept Russian money in order to allow Sirotkin to race.

  • Depending on how world events go, I could see that becoming a problem by the last third of the year...

    Unlikely for 2018, since he'd have to give the FIA 3 months notice of leaving his position in the karting administration heirarchy. Which would be a lot of flaff for what would necessarily be a part-season.

    Put it this way: there's almost as much chance of Williams hiring me as there is of Felipe - and I've never had so much as a provisional road driving licence for good reason...

    Given my feelings towards Massa... You're hired!

  • You can't help wondering what with McLaren's pain (relationship with Honda?) in the last while ... are Williams stepping into the "heat zone" this season??

    Okay, since Bottas joined Williams alongside Massa, it's been steady decline, but the early signs this season look very alarming for the team.  I wonder if Williams are already in panic mode after the first outing of the season?

    I expect Sergey to improve with more experience in the car, Stroll, not as convinced ... but only time will tell to what level the drivers can deliver and more importantly, how much the Williams car can improve in the months ahead!

    All the best,
    Cal :)

    To put it another way: there's more chance of them hiring you than Felipe. (Though if it turns out you've ever had a racing licence, the joke is probably going to fall flat :D )

    Well, driving and me are not natural bed fellows, I can do it but I choose the bus every time.  I guess not having a car right now probably makes that choice easier, but the point's the same! 

    Maybe if we get enough money together, Williams might give one of us a test?  And it pains me to even make that joke  :'(
