    Williams it is then. I can see no other seat but that one.

    Mezzer A fine chap if ever there was one. Contributor

    So the fantasy of a Kubica return is finally laid to rest and Williams have unsurprisingly followed the money. Sad to see it, but I had always thought there was zero chance of him getting a F1 drive again, so even being able to test far exceeded my expectations. I hope he finds something he still enjoys.

    After Alonso retirement and the purchase Force India by Stroll, Robert finally has a real chance to return. What you think?

    Firstly welcome to CTA Lucky Luke *waves*

    Secondly I'm not too sure. With Stroll leaving Williams they'll need to replace the money they lose from him so I think they'll stick with Sirotkin and probably go for whoever is ousted at Force India by Lance Stroll. Either Perez for his backing or Ocon due to Merc backing. All this could leave Kubica still in the testing role.

    The only chance Kubica will get back into F1 is if a sponsor like Martini came along said they wanted a driver over 25 years old with proven grand prix pedigree.

    It appears Williams will probably field Russell in the other car given Mercedes push for to blood their young drivers over Oliver Rowland who probably deserves a shot at least

    I think Ocon is first in the queue where Merc drivers are concerned so it depends on where he lands. I still think Perez and his backing will be quite a tempting of an offer for Williams but that again depends on if Perez can find a seat elsewhere.

    I'm afraid I can't see a race seat again for Kubica (or poor old Oli Rowland) in F1 but would love to see him turn his hand to Formula E.

    Apparently Ocon and Stroll are good friends from junior days and Esteban is well liked by the FI team so maybe that will be enough to keep him there so Russell goes to Williams

    Does Russel have money to give Williams? They need pay drivers or they won't make it to the end of the season.

    He's Merc backed so not really - unless Merc want him in which I don't think they need to do at the moment.

    If Russell wins F2 ahead of Norris then putting Russell in either Formula E or DTM is a daft decision by Toto given he's pretty much been seen in the Mercedes paddock at the grand prix weekends. Russel has pretty much set his sights on F1 and a young british driver in a Williams does seems to go down well considering the last young Brit Williams gave their debut became world champion

    Nearly 20 years ago.

    Yes nearly 20 years ago now . It was on Frank's gut instinct to pick the inexperience Jenson over certainly on paper the much more ready Bruno Junqeira.

    It actually reminds me how far Williams have fallen given they have a proud history and developing future world champions
