Sooo looking forward to this season - I think it's going to be the most exciting since 2009.

Williams look likely to confirm Renault test-driver Sergey Sirotkin in that 2nd seat after all the speculation over whether it'll be Robert Kubica, Paul di Resta, Pascal Wehrlein or Daniil Kvyat laugh.gif

Looks like we're on the hunt for a new 3rd driver then!! Not surprised this is how it played out. Kubica is fab for PR for them, and their Martini sponsorship, and then it does appear that Sirotkin was genuinely quicker on the data - does explain why Renault hesitated and pushed for Sainz as part of the deal to allow TR out of their supply deal.

Interesting there from motorsport.com on the McRenault adaptation that reveals a little more detail about the differences in packaging between the different manufacturers and then the impact that has on the car itself. Also explains why the Merc had to run with a long wheelbase last year compared to the Ferrari/Renault cars
