    I think Williams connection with SMP Racing will mean either Sirotkin or Markelov.

    More than likely after they were screwed over by Rich

    Signing Gutierrez would go against what Claire Williams was saying that they pick drivers on talent :o:whistle::facepalm:

    I can see the headling " Williams sign Esteban.... but the wrong one !"

    They signed the wrong Derek in 1982.

    Always remember that clip of Sir Frank giving a test to Senna in 82/83 and explaining why Williams wouldn't be signing him as the team didn't sign rookie drivers.

    Anyone else putting 2 & 2 together. Because as it turns out that ocon couldve signed because Williams thought they had the rich energy money. Then haas nicked from under their feet. Which after being in the williams hospitality & press release written. They wouldve been furious.

    Now all of a sudden a pay driver is being considered

    No. Please don't say he's got the slightest chance of even putting the foot in the door. Someone to add to Il_leone list of worst drivers in F1.

    He came to look after his mate. His mate retired. He's not achieved a great deal.

    As a person i really like him & big loss to grid. As he came across as a great guy down to earth & loyalty/friendship with massa was nice

    But on a professional level this has been way overdue. Because during his reign he is/was head of vehicle performance with williams having 1 of worst chassis on grid. Proven in latter years that once Mercedes dominance on the power unit reduced season by season. Williams went back & back to a point that in 4 yrs at Austria theyve gone from front row lockout to 16th & 18th 2.1secs off

    Don’t know if it’s been mentioned somewhere else but apparently Claire is trying to find money that allows Williams to sign Ocon.

    Not really. Two years ago, he said that in two years time he'd take a step back from F1.

    https://www.planetf1.com/news/williams-offer-kubica-race-seat-for-2019/

    If Kubica hopes to retain any shred of a reputation, I would think he would decline the offer from the boat anchor team of the grid.

    siffert_fan I disagree he has nothing to lose because getting back in an F1 car and onto the F1 grid is a triumph in itself

    Yes Williams maybe bottom but then the only way is up then for the team

    There is another way: out.

    They have so many problems, IMO starting with Claire, that knowing where to begin is a near-impossible task.
    While I agree to some extent that just getting back in an F1 car is a triumph in itself, to me it also smacks of desperation an his part. A bit like agreeing to become captain of the Titanic after it has already struck the berg.

    I sincerely hope that I am wrong in this assessment.
