Surely first spec engine is worn out by now... Kubica's spec 3 blew up in Spa.
Why would Williams sabotage Kubica, when Sirotkin was IMO largely on the pace of Stroll, thereby supporting the notion that both Williams cars receive adequate technical support.
And it was replaced with a "new" old specs engine. Right now, Kubica has the only car without a new specs merc engine out of all merc powered cars.
What Sirotkin has to do with it now? If You mentioned him though, on Renault testing ground, Kubica was 0.7s faster than Sirotkin, same car, same track, on his first F1 drive after the crash. When Sirotkin's choice over Robert had to be rationalized, Sirotkin suddenly became faster (even though he has not recorded faster time).
There are quite plenty evidence of Williams making sure George comes on top. Williams kindly provide it nearly every race so far. As for why - same as always, money.
