Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.

Pat Symonds is not the technical director of Williams anymore. Come on. You should know it!

How long will Williams delay signing a second driver? The longer this drags out, the more likely it seems Sirotkin will get the seat.

How do you know ?
I would have thought Kubica would be a more explosive signing

Allegedly word is starting to get out..

Could be a tactic but I already suspected they had gone in that direction. Seems like he really surprised/impressed Williams in Abu Dhabi to the point they couldn’t look past him and has solid Russian backing.

Hmmmm..........

Thanks for the link
I dunno about Saward, he's pretty arrogant but does seem to have some paddock connections.

He gets it right about 70% of the time

Hungarian Motorsport claims Kubica has singned a deal today. I'd say it's as reliable as Saward's tweet.
We'll know for sure when it's official - otherwise it's all rumors.
