If Sainz joins Alpine, who is Williams' best F1 option for 2025?

OPINION: Carlos Sainz's Formula 1 future has been the focus of the 2025 driver market of late, with a decision from the Spaniard looming. Williams has viewed him as a key target, but it is now looking elsewhere as he ponders all of his options. So what should the Grove-based squad do?

The Carlos Sainz transfer telenovela continues to deliver further twists, the kind that only a soap opera can deliver seconds before the "doof doof" feeds into the final credits at the end of a hackneyed half-hour of stilted conversation. So, where were we?

At the end of the last episode, Sainz continued to pore over two clear offers: one from Sauber, one from Williams. There's a knock at the door, and the camera follows the Spaniard twisting the handle. The director, containing the surprise for a second longer, switches to a shot of him standing on the doorstep and a barely audible gasp breaks from his countenance. Flavio Briatore stands there, offer in hand, hoping to whisk him away from under the noses of the other teams and bring him to Alpine.
