Sirotkin wants clarity over future as Williams rumours continue

Sergey Sirotkin says he wants clarity over his F1 future sooner rather than later as rumours continue to circulate over the vacant Williams seat for 2019. The Russian is not yet confirmed at the team for next season as other names are continually linked with the seat including Robert Kubica.

Sirotkin said he was seeking certainty over his future as recent speculation has Robert Kubica making a return to F1 with the team in 2019.

"Right now, sitting here, I want clarity," he told Russian publication Sport-Express.

"It is very unpleasant to read the latest news. But in Abu Dhabi I will get behind the wheel and all of the problems disappear.

"I have said repeatedly that I invested much more in this season than people see, and the last thing I want is for the results of my work to go to someone else.

"It is clear that this year we worked for the future, with the results coming next season. If I lose what I worked on, it will be a big disappointment."

Sirotkin has pumped a lot of cash into the Williams team as part of his deal to drive for the team this season, however he might not be in prime position for a drive next season if the recent rumours are to be believed.

Kubica will also be making an appearance at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in FP1 as part of his test and reserve role with the team.
