BREAKING! Williams F1 team and Nicholas Latifi will part ways come 2023

It was inevitable that Williams would replace Latifi owing to mediocre performances from him. Who replaces him next though is of keen importance.

Williams F1 team have announced that Nicholas Latifi will leave the team at the end of 2022. Latifi’s contract with the Grove outlet expires at the end of 2022 and Williams will not be renewing it.

Following several free practice outings, Latifi got his F1 race debut in 2020 – the Canadian making 55 starts and scoring seven points to date. On Friday, Williams announced that the season finale in Abu Dhabi would be his last race with the team. Latifi said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Williams Racing – all the people back at the factory and those I work with trackside – for the last three years. My initial F1 debut was postponed due to the pandemic but we eventually got going in Austria and, although we have not achieved the results together we hoped we would, it’s still been a fantastic journey. Getting those first points in Hungary last year was a moment I’ll never forget, and I will move onto the next chapter of my career with special memories of my time with this dedicated team. I know none of us will stop putting in every effort until the end of the season.”

With a very impressive outing in his F1 debut, Nyck Devries seems all set to replace Latifi come 2023. Although, Williams have not confirmed it and have stated they’re going to announce their second driver soon. Jost Capito, Williams CEO and Team Principal, said: “On behalf of the whole team, I would like to say an enormous thank you to Nicholas for his three years of hard work with Williams. He is a great team player who has a great attitude towards his colleagues and work and is well liked and respected throughout the business. Our time together is now coming to an end, but I know he will put full effort in to maximise what we can do together for the remainder of this season. We wish him all the very best of luck for his future, both in and out of the cockpit.”
