I can't imagine they'll struggle. Their income just from their roadcar division probably trounces Ferrari due to the volume of cars Mercedes put out.

I'd also guess it's not a situation like McLaren where no one wants to put their name on that steaming pile of shit. Companies with the money to have their name on a car must be falling over themselves to be a part of consecutive championship winning team!

Just read on Sky F1's Gossip Column (usually fairly reliable) that Sergey Sirotkin is now the favorite for the seat at Williams due to significant financial backing.

I'll be gutted if Kubica doesn't get on the grid. It certainly won't be from a lack of effort on his half!

Just when you thought the FIA couldn't possibly be less informed about motor sport, here comes Carmen Jorda.

Still no news on the Williams seat, seems a bit amateur-hour to not have your final seat confirmed when the rest of the grid has confirmed seats and are full swing in preparing for 2018.

Gossip still seems to say Sirotkin will be getting the seat.
