Latifi left with mixed feelings after maiden Canadian GP

Nicholas Latifi reveals that he enjoyed the “special” atmosphere of the Canadian GP, but was not happy with on-track action.

Last weekend’s Canadian GP was the first home race for Latifi as F1 did not visit Montreal in 2020 and 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, the weekend did not go well for the Williams driver. He started the race 18th and crossed the finish line in P16.

“I mean obviously the overall experience of the weekend has been pretty special; it’s great to finally have that first home race and the support I felt – family, friends, all the fans in the grandstands – has been amazing,” Latifi reflected on the weekend.

“In terms of the actual on-track stuff, there was nothing really enjoyable about the race. We were just lacking a lot of pace. We have to try and understand why, because at the moment there’s no answers.

“Low fuel, high fuel, the pace is just not there, so we have two weeks now to try and do a bit of analysis because it’s not just this race, it’s even from the previous ones. There’s something not quite right there. We’ll see what we can find.”
