Williams and Nicholas Latifi will part ways at the conclusion of the 2022 Formula 1 season, announced on Friday.

Latifi joined Williams in 2020 but was unable to match the performance of his teammates George Russell and Alexander Albon. In 3 seasons with the team, he had two top 10 finishes – in Hungary and Belgium in 2021.

Latifi’s contract was expiring this year and Williams confirmed that the Canadian will leave the team.

“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,” Latifi commented.

“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.”

CEO and team principal Jost Capito added: “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 maximize 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.”
