Nicholas Latifi and Alex Albon will form the Williams Racing driver line-up in the next F1 season.

Why it matters: While Latifi was likely to stay at Williams, the rumors about the second seat have been in the paddock for a long time, especially regarding the potential block of Albon’s move by Mercedes.


  • Latifi and Albon take another two available seats in the 2022 F1 grid.
  • Albon comes back to full-time F1 action after driving for Toro Rosso (now AlphaTauri) and Red Bull Racing in 2019-2020.

We are extremely excited by our new line-up, with both drivers bringing a great blend of youth and experience that will not only be a great fit for the team but also help the team take the next step in our journey.
