Hot seat at Wil­liams

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.
