Rumour: Robert Kubica has received driver offer from Williams

Autosport reports that Robert Kubica has got an offer from Williams to drive for the 2019 season. Kubica, who has been part of the team this year, looks set to make his driving return following a rally crash in 2011.

The article Autosport posted has had some tweaks made to it in order to soften the report after Williams reportedly cornered the journalist in their motorhome.

However, the Pole has been rumoured to be joining Ferrari in a test and development role. Here's what Kubica had to say about the ordeal.

"I think we are quite close to the decision From my point of view, I'm getting there, and I have a deadline very soon, in my head," Kubica told Autosport.

"It'll be within a few days, what I decide, what I want to do, and what I think ia vest direction for me. I'm in a comfortable situation, and this is what I've been saying for a few weeks."

If Kubica signs for Williams, he will partner up with young Brit George Russell. Sergey Sirotkin and Esteban Ocon, two other front-runners for the seat, will miss out on an F1 drive next season should the deal go through.

Kubica was then asked about the Ferrari deal being his priority. He said: "Maybe the wish of driving and coming back to F1 is bigger than the wish of a long project. I leave a lot to personal conclusions."

Before the crash, Kubica had an offer to drive for Ferrari which he confirmed in his autobiography earlier this year.
