Frank Williams says he would not think twice about bringing young Briton Lewis Hamilton into Formula One next season if he were McLaren’s Ron Dennis. “I wouldn’t be so presumptuous as to tell Ron Dennis… how to do his job,” the team boss wrote in the Daily Telegraph newspaper on Wednesday.

“If I were Ron, I would have no hesitation in putting him in the car. He looked outstanding this year, a super talent,” added Williams of the 21-year-old winner of this year’s GP2 feeder series. “There is another benefit too, that is often overlooked. These young drivers bring the costs down. They will be ratcheted up in the years ahead, of course, But it gives us a bit more flexibility.”
