Williams have promised that they will continue to scout for talent and give youngsters a chance in Formula One.
Valtteri Bottas has been one of the beneficiaries of Williams' investment in young talent in recent years as he started out as a test driver before being handed a race seat this year.
Although Williams doesn't have a young driver programme, deputy team principal Claire Williams says they will continue to search for future stars.
When asked by Autosport if they are planning to bring in a youngster, Williams replied: "Yes, there is. That's one of the great things about Williams, one of the things that we like to do is to pick up new talent we can bring in.
"Frank [Williams] loves bringing in new drivers and seeing who is out there, and he finds that so exciting.
"We have just put Valtteri in the cockpit so that position is available.
"We are doing some diligence on who is out there and who is well-suited to joining the team."
While teams like Red Bull have had great success with their young driver programmes, Williams are forced to go down a different route, but Williams says a development project of their own may not be too far off.
"We would like to do a proper young driver programme in the future but that's always about budget and we have got to make sure that the budget is in place and secure for the F1 team before we start looking at doing a comprehensive young driver programme like the likes of Lotus or Red Bull," she said.
"We'd like to have a couple of drivers we can look at and there will be a couple of announcements about that soon."
