With Williams set to take Sergey Sirotkin, what's it like for those working in a team to know a driver has been taken primarily for commercial reasons? He seems to be an OK driver, but he's nothing amazing, so surely that just makes all the hard work feel like it's for nothing?

Williams is in a very difficult position for next year. It has Lance Stroll in one car with only a year's experience and, to be honest, he didn't improve as much as I expected as the season progressed. Yes, 2018 could be a very different story for Stroll, but with the information currently available Williams shouldn't expect too much.
