Jan.10 - A man close to the negotiations has issued a firm "no comment" on whether Williams' 2018 driver lineup is now complete.

Although Robert Kubica was earlier a popular contender for the seat, it is now firmly believed that Russian Sergey Sirotkin will become Lance Stroll's teammate this year.

However, former F1 driver Mika Salo is not commenting.

"I cannot comment on anything about that at all," he is quoted by Ilta Sanomat newspaper.

The Finn, who drove for Ferrari and Toyota, is now the sporting director of SMP Racing -- the motor racing arm of the Russian bank SMP that will reportedly back 22-year-old Sirotkin to the tune of $20 million in 2018.

  • Jazzi: "... so far in 2018"? What a laugh ?. Its pitiful to see a former world champion, superb driver and thoroughly pleasant chap get treated so shoddily. Respect to the Iceman for maintaining his class and dignity amidst Ferrari's disgraceful practices. They self-destructed last season, poetic justice some may say. If so, the implosion may be even worse this year because Kimi is genuinely competive. He out-qualified Seb in Melbourne, and in the last 2 qualifying sessions, he was only edged off pole by Seb in the final flying rounds of Q3. Yet, he still gets screwed by the Ferrari strategist in the races. Pathetic! View Post
