The Williams team decided on the option in case Robert Kubica for health reasons can not take the place of combat pilot.
As writes the Swiss newspaper Blick, the second candidate to replace Felipe Massa next season is the Russian racer Daniil Kvyat, who lost his seat in the Toro Rosso and the whole Red Bull a few steps to the end of the championship 2017.
However, in order to be in Williams, Kvyat will also need financial support.
Yesterday, after Friday practice, Williams technical Director paddy Lowe confirmed that Kubica will take part in tyre tests for Pirelli, which will be held after the Grand Prix of Abu Dhabi. But I guess the decision will be taken soon.
“It is unlikely that the decision will be made soon, said Lowe at a press conference FIA on Friday. – We have several options to assess which will take time. When we solve, we will tell you about it.”
Two other candidates in Williams, along with Kubica and Cuatom are Paul di Resta and Pascal Wehrlein.
