Simon Roberts, Williams’ acting chief executive, declined to confirm that George Russell and Nicholas Latifi will remain with the team in 2021, although both have valid contracts signed under the previous owners.
But in August it was announced that the team had been sold to the American holding company Dorilton Capital, and lately there have been rumors in the paddock that the new management is ready to take advantage of the fact that such an experienced and fast driver as Sergio Perez is leaving Racing Point, and Williams allegedly interested in inviting a Mexican as he has very generous sponsors.
“I’m not going to talk about this,” Roberts said at the FIA press conference. – Dorilton acquired a team, but if we talk about the drivers, nothing has changed so far. There are so many speculations that it’s just some kind of madness. Anyway, this is rumor season anyway, but we have nothing more to add.
Both riders are doing an excellent job, and I do not want to further fuel the rumors. Whatever we say, someone is bound to cling to some details. In a word, we are satisfied with our riders, we have no news on these topics, so I suggest everyone to turn their attention to other teams. “
