Post F1 in 2018
Williams are close to signing Sergey Sirotkin as the final piece of the 2018 grid falls into place.

The team are finalising a contract with the 22-year-old, who established his credentials in a test in Abu Dhabi after the end of last season.

The Russian, who has a reported budget of €15m (£13.3m), was faster than rival Robert Kubica after the team had fully analysed all the data from the test.

Sirotkin will be making his F1 debut as partner to a 19-year-old who has raced for only one season.

Williams had been intending to sign Kubica for a return to F1 seven years after the Pole suffered life-changing injuries in a rally crash in February 2011.

But the team's interest in the 32-year-old cooled after he tested their 2017 car in Abu Dhabi alongside Sirotkin.
