Recent reports suggested the bulk of the Grove team’s resources are now shifting towards next year’s project, with teenage rookie Stroll expected to stay at Williams.
“Calm down — let’s go step by step,” the Canadian laughed in Hungary.
“At the moment I am focused on this championship and on my development.
“It is true that there are a group of fantastic people who have arrived at our team, such as Paddy (Lowe) and they’re already working on the 2018 project,” Stroll admitted.
“I believe we have a very strong group capable of producing a very competitive car.”
Williams is currently fifth in the world championship, 54 points behind Force India.
