Giedo van der Garde at Caterham - McGregor to follow?

With Giedo van der Garde now confirmed as the reserve driver at Caterham, what is likely to happen with McGregor? They're a big backer of van der Garde so I wouldn't be surprised if they disappear from Williams and pop off to Caterham .

Might be a small contributing reason as to why we haven't seen an update on the official Williams site in regards to partners (I've been checking fairly regularly to see whether new sponsors have come on board, but nothing has changed since Michael Johnson Performance came on board - I've been waiting to see Bruno Sennas sponsors appear).

Hopefully they stay on with Williams aswell (like Santander and 2 teams).

Good question, I don't know when the contract with McGregor expires, but I guess the will be with Williams in 2012 (they are still on the website).

Also, what will happen with Randstad and Williams? I know that they recently have signed a new contract with Williams, but this big Dutch company might also leave if Van der Garde is successful at Caterham.

Good pickup, didn't think of Randstad leaving (and I was only looking at information about them today) - they have been quite loyal to us and increased their committment late last year so I cannot see them pulling out for the 2012 season, but it's possible after that should van der Garde get the nod for a race seat in 2013.

I don't think so. Their logo matches our livery far better than Caterham's. They became our big sponsor. I doubt somebody like Van der Garde at Caterham may take Randstad from us to them.

My bet is that McGregor will stay with Williams at least until the end of the 2012. Otherwise, they would disappear from our website at the same time, as AT&T, GAC and Sparco.
