Im hoping all the Kubica looking good for the seat is just media hype.

RK has said he cant wait until December for a Williams decision....Claire Williams has said she wont be deciding any time soon on the second driver, and is in no rush.

C4 this weekend seemed pretty sure the Ocon deal was done. Either Kubica has a HUGE wedge of dosh to out weigh Mercedes, or Williams are stage managing this for extra publicity. Perish the thought!

Yup, can't see how Kubica could fit into an F1 grid on merit, hasn't been in an F1 race for eight years now!

Think Midgetman is also on the money.

Im with you on that.... more news today makes my belief stronger, with Vandoorne getting the Mercedes simulator gig over the much more Mercedes aligned Ocon. Good for Vandoorne, as with his electric series gig and this Merc simulator gig as well he will keep his name in the F1 paddock for the future. A simulator b**ch gig at Ferrari did not do Kvyat any harm did it.

But there has to be a good reason why one so aligned with Mercedes, and who has indicated they would be in the F1 paddock anyway, would be overlooked in favour of Vandoorne.

I would put money on Ocon to Williams for at least 2019.

I have to agree the idea of Kubica in the Williams is a very romantic thought, in practical terms Ocon is the choice I would make...

And it seems like Williams are working hard to make it happen, if it hasn't already been a done deal. So looks like Ocon will stay on the grid after all

if the seat is between Ocon and Kubica i would prefer to see it go to Ocon...but i am still very curious to see what he can do.

maybe thats for the last couple of races this year or a full time ride next year with a different team (although off the top of my head not sure what, if any, seats are still available for next year).

So William, met with Williams, and spoke to Rob during the weekend.

Has the Kubica hype train been given a 'richer' chance of making it to it's final destination?? We will have to wait and see I guess.

I am 100% with Ted on his comments in the video below.

C'mon Williams. You have lost many of your Williams F1 Team fans because of your actions in the past few years. Me included. Here's a chance for you to get those fans back onboard. DO IT Williams!!

How about he joins Williams, they end up sucking in 2019 and then those who carry the torch for Kubica will blame Williams for putting the last nail in the coffin of his F1 career. Or the alternative is that Williams magically rebounds and Kubica romps. What is more likely?
