    Default F1 - Williams driver rumours

    Jenson Button has been widely picked as a replacement for Massa at Williams for next year. Button would be more attractive to sponsors than either Massa or Bottas. Massa is 35 years of age.

    New rumour has Lance Stroll replacing Bottas at Williams. The 17 year old Stroll is currently leading F3 series, but just as importantly his father has $35 million to tip into the team, money which Williams as one of the smaller teams, could certainly put to good use.

    I can understand Williams choosing Button (for being a Pom) although he was born in Jan 1980. So not an improvement over Massa in terms of age.....
    Realistically they are both close to the end of shelf life.
    As for Stroll, whom I know nothing about, didn't F1 bring in a minimum age for a super licence? Would he be able to even start on the Melbourne grid next year.

    Stroll will be 18 before the end of the year, so will meet the minimum age requirement of 18 years.

    I agree both are near the end of the careers, but as you say, Button is a Pom and additionally, he has won a title, where as Massa's 2nd(2008), 3rd(2006) and fourth(2007) does not quite have the same ring
