Re: Will Alonso and Bottas make it to the next race?

Susie Wolff ain't ever racing for Williams. Claire Williams said yesterday that Wolff is just their test driver, not a reserve driver. She isn't even on their list of drivers to race for them in the event of one of their main drivers not being able to. It won't be Alex Lynn either because he is unb...

Re: Will Alonso and Bottas make it to the next race?

I think after everything it would be put Williams in bad light if they didn't give susie the chance. Yes technically she isn't a reserve driver she's a test driver but she's not doing it for fun. She wants to race and should be given the chance. Is mag a reserve driver or test driver. Unless they t...

Re: Alonso crash/missing Melbourne [MERGED]

Re: Alonso crash/missing Melbourne [MERGED]

just read on another site that Alonso has said that he is working as hard as possible to be fit for Malaysia, I read that as meaning that he may well miss that race as well. Does that mean that he's out of observation and working on physical and mental agility (I.e. back to usual training regime), ...
