The former Force India driver made the switch from F1 racing to German touring car series DTM in 2015 and the Scot will continue to race in that series this season.

However, he is also set to become reserve driver for the Williams team.

The 29-year-old will do work for the team in the simulator and be ready to replace either Bottas or Massa if the need arises.

‘I am delighted to be joining Williams as reserve driver and look forward to the 2016 season,’

‘It will be a busy year combining both driving in DTM with Mercedes AMG, and attending the Formula 1 grands prix in my new reserve driver role.
he told

‘I will be giving my full support to both and look forward to the exciting possibilities the year has ahead. I would like to thank Claire and Williams for the opportunity to be part of the team.’
