Wheeling in the Future: Five Contenders to Join Alex Albon at Williams in 2025



Potential Teammates for Alex Albon in 2025 Following Multi-Year Contract Renewal with Williams

As Williams confirms Alex Albon's extended contract before the Imola race this weekend, speculation arises on who might join him as a teammate in 2025.

In a recent development within the Formula 1 driver landscape, Williams has declared that Alex Albon is set to stay with the squad, having inked a long-term agreement.

As of yet, who will partner with Albon as a teammate in 2025 remains a mystery.

Logan Sargeant's lackluster performance suggests that Williams might be exploring options in the driver market to enhance their team roster for the upcoming season.

Here are potential signings Williams might make to team up with Albon.

Andrea">Kimi Antonelli is said to be the top choice to team up with Albon if Mercedes believes he isn't prepared.

Antonelli is seen as Mercedes' rising star, essentially their version of a future Max Verstappen.

The Italian is frequently mentioned in connection with Williams, with some reports even indicating he might debut in F1 this weekend.

The FIA disclosed that they had been approached with a plea to grant Antonelli a super licence prematurely, prior to his 18th birthday, sparking rumors that he might start his Formula 1 career at Imola.

His attention remained on his FIA Formula 2 efforts, and as such, that did not come to fruition.

Williams might secure Antonelli if Mercedes chooses Carlos Sainz or if Verstappen makes a move away from Red Bull.

Valtteri Bottas might find himself back with Williams in the future.

It seems that the chances are slim for the Finn to stay on with Sauber/Audi, especially since the team has already brought Nico Hulkenberg on board.

Sauber is keen on">king Sainz their top pick, with the duo from Alpine also being highly regarded by Andreas Seidl.

Despite not registering any points in the 2024 season to date, Bottas’ contributions at Sauber have been commendable.

He remains undefeated in qualifiers when facing Zhou Guanyu, and if not for some bad luck during pit stops, he probably would have finished in the points in at least two races.

Pairing Bottas with Albon could provide Williams with a highly competitive midfield duo, a dynamic the team hasn't seen since Bottas and Felipe Massa raced together back in 2016.

Pierre Gasly is also being considered as a possible addition to the Williams team.

Sky's David Croft reports that Gasly has engaged in discussions with Williams about a possible move.

Considering Alpine's underwhelming results in 2024, Gasly could be inclined towards seeking a new opportunity.

Despite being a factory team, Alpine has not lived up to its expected performance throughout the years.

Gasly might find the prospect of moving to Grove enticing, and considering his younger age relative to Bottas, Williams might find him a more attractive choice.

The situation is much the same for Esteban Ocon.

Alpine's current performance makes them susceptible, and Ocon emerges as a key figure in the driver market.

The French driver is also being considered for a position with Audi if their efforts to secure Sainz are unsuccessful.

In 2024, Ocon has emerged as an underrated star, showcasing exceptional performance.

Williams landing him would be a significant achievement, especially since he has a knack for thriving in less competitive equipment.

Similar to his teammate Bottas, Zhou is expected to be available for hire.

According to reports, the driver from China is considered a leading candidate to take over Kevin Magnussen's spot at Haas, possibly joining forces with Oliver Bearman.

Though Zhou may not possess the highest speed outright, he consistently performs well during races.

Supported financially, he emerges as a potential choice, though not a particularly exciting one.
