Dec.21 (GMM/ A Williams spokesperson has played down reports its F1 team drivers could race in the electric single seater series Formula E next year.

Reports, including by the Finnish broadcaster MTV3, had cited rumours that with Williams set to run Jaguar’s new Formula E team, Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas could be drafted into the driver lineup when possible.
