Latifi wants Williams to judge his form after chassis change

Nicholas Latifi believes that Williams should evaluate his performance only after the chassis change he had at the British GP.

Latifi had difficulties adapting to the new generation of Formula 1 cars. The Canadian is regularly outperformed by his teammate Alexander Albon.

Latifi received a new chassis at the British GP and got to Q3 that weekend. He finished the race the following day 12th. Though he had two retirements and an 18th place finish in the next three races, Latifi thinks that Williams should take only those races into account while making a decision on whether to keep him on the team.

“Now that I do feel much more comfortable in the position I’m in with showing up the weekends knowing that, okay, if I drive the way I know I can drive and get as much as I can out of the car, then the performance is where it needs to be which I think is deserving of staying in F1,” he told Motorsport.com.

“Whereas obviously at the beginning of the year that wasn’t the case. I’ve made my position clear that you can’t deny the past races, what’s the change in performance, and I’ve put more pressure on myself now because performance is there now [for the team to assess] me from now onwards.

“So I’m putting more pressure on myself, but the pressure is always going to be there. And so I know I can and I feel I can deliver, and for me, I showed that to myself the past few races. So yeah, pressure’s on me now. But that’s F1, right?”
