A Williams spokesperson has played down reports its F1 team drivers could race in the electric single seater series Formula E next year.

Reports, including by the Finnish broadcaster MTV3, had cited rumours that with Williams set to run Jaguar's new Formula E team, Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas could be drafted into the driver lineup when possible.

But a spokesman for the Oxfordshire based team said there is "no truth whatsoever" to the speculation. (GMM)

  • Why on earth would they race there? They'll hardly have the time for that with a filled calendar like the one 2016 will feature.

    Formula E isn't a real series. Really, giving an advantage to the driver with the most responses on facebook and changing cars halfway through the "race". Best they try again in ten years.
