While choosing the 2022 Williams driver line-up, Jost Capito admitted that he wanted to keep continuity inside the team, and do not change both drivers.
Why it matters: George Russell left Williams to join Mercedes and the British team announced Alexander Albon as the new teammate of Nicholas Latifi for the upcoming season.
- It was not an easy decision, as Jost Capito said, since there are many young talents ready to race in Formula 1.
- The team decided to go for a young but experienced driver line-up, and it has also opted to keep Latifi to give continuity to the project.
It was a difficult decision because there are a couple of really good and promising drivers out there. For us, we finally got what is a combination of youth and Formula 1 experience, and also a really good fit in the team. With Nicky, of course, we wanted to have a continuation as well. I’m not keen on changing two drivers at the same time.Jost Capito
