Kubica set for Abu Dhabi test

NEWS STORY
12/11/2017

As speculation over who will partner Lance Stroll at Williams continues, it is understood that Robert Kubica will make his debut in the Grove outfit's 2017 contender at the forthcoming test in Abu Dhabi.

Though he has previously driven Renault's 2017 car - in the post Hungary test - his two outings for Williams at Silverstone and the shoot-out at the Hungaroring, were in the 2014 car.

The Pole's main rival for the 2018 seat at Williams, Paul di Resta, has previous experience of the FW40 haven driven it in Hungary when he replaced an unwell Felipe Massa.

It is unclear who will drive the car on the second day of the Abu Dhabi test but the rules dictate that at least one day must be given over to a 'young driver'.

The other contenders for the Williams seat are said to be Daniil Kvyat and Pascal Wehrlein, and while Kubica and di Resta are said to be the favourites, talk of the Grove outfit seeking a driver who can bring a decent financial package with him suggests financial clout may well help the team with its decision. A sad state of affairs which sums up the current state of the sport and the multi-champions.

""A sad state of affair which sums up the current state of the sport and the multi-champions." Indeed. Indeed. If not, why do not give another estrategic year to Felipe, knowing that in 2018, a large number of drivers will be available for multi-year contract? We all know that Felipe does not bring title sponsors to the team anymore and he is not a promising young future top driver but ... does Williams will make a future top car? Beeing a team struggling to get to the top 3, should'nt they persiste in having a mature driver on the weel. Look at the abyssal performance gap between Lance and Felipe. Have we saw that between Verstappen and Ricciardo? Or Ocon and Sergio? Very sad, indeed."
