Williams linked with Honda and Bridgestone deal

UPDATE This rumor is now downgraded to 'false' as Williams will race with Cosworth next year. 06/01/05 Williams have now been linked with a switch to both Honda and Bridgestone. With BMW expected to buy out Sauber, the rumor mill reckons that Williams could be set to use Toyota power from the start of next season. Meanwhile, Nick Heidfeld is expected to move to the new BMW-Sauber team, making room for Jenson Button at Grove. However, Honda have now emerged as possible contenders, along with Toyota and Cosworth, as new engine partners with Williams if and when their partnership with BMW ends.

The paddock is also awash with talk that Frank Williams was spotted in talks with Bridgestone's Hiroshi Yusakawa at the weekend. Bridgestone are known to be keen to bring more teams into their stable, accepting that only supplying Ferrari with tires is a severe handicap. Planet-F1
