Could that mean Kubica or even Ocon in the car at Spa?

Either would be positive.

Will Perez & Ocon finish this season in Force India or will Lance drive there already in Spa?

Next good thing Papa Stroll can do for us is to take Robert with himself to FIF1.
That leaves Ocon and Perez available, one would finish in our car.

Hmmm. Direct swap for Perez? Or Ocon with the Merc benefits? Happy with either. I think we would be better off with Ocon and some help from Merc with engine costs and gearbox etc.

I wonder how much power this gives Lawrence? Is it basically his team now and if he wants he can kick Perez and Ocon out and get there another driver that suits his son? Could Merc pressure Stroll to take Ocon on Russel even if Lawrence will buy everything possible for them?

If I was running Williams I’d bounce Laurence and Lance out the team now.

ihme, he's buying the team for his boy. That's all. The other seat maybe influenced with his 'B team' ideas about Merc. I would think they will want to keep Ocon there if they can't place him with Williams.

That leaves Perez free which is interesting for Williams. This is all short term.

I wonder how tenable the Williams / Stroll relationship is going to be for the rest of the season if he stays? It's not going to be comfortable is it? I am tempted to think that Lance may have driven his last race for Williams. At least for now.

Yeah but whats the point of buying an F1 team and having your kid driving there while being beaten by a guy likely faster and better than Massa? Its like Lawrence is thinking "Son, you are finally looking better than your teammate in Williams so now I will buy you a Force India so you can be destroyed again by Perez/Ocon." LOL

I'm not sure it is tenable to have a driver whose Father owns / leads another team.

What happens when Stroll trie to overtake a FI or, more likely this year, one tries to overtake him?

Even if he behaves entirely appropriately and fights for Williams, fans / pundits / sponsors will suspect he isn't.

Untenable.

Depends on the contract. We can't oust Stroll jr. Probably not without losing millions. It will have to come from the Strolls. They would have to be prepared to @#$%& of Mercedes or Perez and give them millions too.

Anyways the situation will be tense now in our team.

Lance who didnt care much previously will probably not give a single @#$%& now.

If we are taking on more Merc technology... I'd say pick up Ocon.

But I'd still like to see what Robert can do in this racecar.
Does he have what it takes and also improve Williams performance?

So guys do we think that when the news about Lawrence paying Force India's staff salaries broke few weeks ago did Stroll was positive back then that he will own the team and it was basically just a matter of time for him?

Am I really the only one who thinks Williams are the big losers in this whole situation? Millions of dollars just left Grove and have entered FI’s building. Of course this means Lance Stroll will leave. But the terrible performance this year is 90% Williams failt.

Apparently the exit of Lance Stroll makes you guys happier than the financial future of this team....
