Hot seat at Williams
Williams will evaluate Robert Kubica and Paul di Resta’s potential for its available Formula 1 seat with tests in a 2014-spec F1 car between the next two grands prix. Williams has become the most coveted seat left on the F1 grid for 2018, with the team having received enquiries from several drivers and made its own contact with others. It had slimmed its shortlist of drivers to partner Lance Stroll for 2018 down to three – Kubica, Felipe Massa and di Resta – but it is believed Pascal Wehrlein is also now in the frame. Williams plans to run Kubica in a 2014 car, which has been used by Stroll for familiarisation during last season and at points this year, before the next round in Austin.
