SMP sporting director Mika Salo defends Sirotkin choice

“Sirotkin ended up there [in Williams] not because of money, but due to his sports qualities. This is why I think Williams took him. We, on our part, prefer to invest into technologies.”
SMP Racing chief says never paid F1 Team Williams for taking Russia’s Sirotkin on board

“Some of [the missed results] is down to error here and there, operational issues, some of which was reliability which was not as good as we’d like. Some of it is the driver not being able to exploit the car that is available.” – Paddy Lowe
Drivers didn’t always exploit car in 2017
