While most of the teams/drivers are being involved in all sorts of 'Silly Season' rumours - Williams Martini Racing has confirmed their 2015 line-up. Whether ou are or aren't surprised by their choice of retaining both Finnish driver, Valtteri Bottas and Brazilian driver, Felipe Massa, one thing is for sure, they've got the upper-hand this season.
While Bottas has had more podiums this season, Massa has helped with the points tally. The duo work great with eachother, so there's no reason as to why Williams would be keen to switch out either one of them.
But, could another team snatch Bottas out of his contract with Williams? It could happen. It has before with numerous other teams. With his multiple podiums, good points scoring record and the fact it's only his second year in F1, he is being watched by other teams no doubt.
What about Massa? Well, could Ferrari buy him back? Mattiacci already announced he has no plans to switch out either driver of his current line-up (Alonso & Raikkonen) - But, nothing is completely confirmed. Williams is only the second team to formally confirm their driver line-up. The first being Toro Rosso. So even if Ferrari has mentioned 'Retaining' their current drivers, things could change.
More to come.
