Williams have got to go with the Kubica/Nico deal.

What and where else can Sirotkin and his Russian money go.

If Paddys team come up with the goods then using Roberts
feedback will pay dividends i am sure.

Only unless the Russians put up an extra 5 mill will it
sway Williams heads.

We can replace Stroll for Sirotkin next season if things
start to drop into place or maybe even a better driver.

My Money is still on Robert and keeping Sergey third driver
for the start of the season.

Well, let's hope he won't be mediocre. On the positive side, his CV isn't bad as a whole and the first year in GP2 was excellent .. . so much so that he was expected to win second time around.

Interesting is that all the Russian reports I read say that the bank will support either Sirotkin or Kvyat, whichever Williams choose . . . even both. The lack of results does seem to be a big negative for Kvyat.

Sirotkin did his times on setup sugested and insisted on by Kubica.

You see.. first day way run on race setup that Massa and Stroll used with their engineers for Abu Dhabi race.

While second day... was run on an adapted setup insisted on by Kubica. At least that was reported. The value of Sirotkin's times lies on Kubica's setup sugestions.

Team need someone to develop the car and setup with engineers together. Not just a guy who turns the wheel and pushes pedals.
They are insisting that Stroll is their long term future...[/quote]


sorry andy, but that's not true.
After tests, Kubica said, that the car had almost basic setup selected by engineers and was not set to his requirements, except for a few little things. This said Kubica himself after tests.

So, there was no special setup from Kubica on the car, only almost basic setup...[/quote]

My wrong... didn't get to read all comments. Specially not local Polish.[/quote]
Just to put this to bed..

The sporting regulations mean the car setup can't be changed from how it raced on Sunday. They both used the same setup and that would have matched the setup of whoever's car was used.

It's in the rules.

Your absolutly wrigth Mikef1, but there was a huge difference on setup between Stroll and Massa, and both Kubica and Sirotkin used diferent cars, now, who used Massa and who used Strolls we don't know.

Hey if Sirotkin used Strolls car and did those times when Kubica was runing Massas with certainly a better set-up then the guy is awesome, shamely everyone who followed him at GP2 knows his average at best.
