Roy Nissany was appointed official test driver at Williams in early 2020 and via press release, the team announced...
As runner-up in the 2019 Formula 2 championship, Nicholas Latifi made his Formula 1 debut in 2020. After Lance Stroll, we have a second Canadian Formula 1 driver in 2021. However, many will wonder if the Canadian got this place based on his performance.
His father, Michael Latifi is a Canadian businessman who managed to earn his money with his own company Sofina Foods and investments in Lilydale and the Santa Maria Group.
Never won anything
The Canadian driver took one victory in 2012 in Italian Formula 3, only to remain dry until 2017. Only then does the Canadian manage to achieve another victory in Formula 2.
In the meantime, Latifi can be admired as a test driver in Formula 1 since 2016. He spent the first two years at Renault and then made the switch to Force India in 2018. In 2019 Latifi got the same role at Williams, after which he got a racing seat for 2020.
Latifi hasn't made a real impression yet, because even in his sixth season in Formula 2 (three years of Formula 2 and three years of GP2) he didn't manage to become a champion.
Latifi in the 2020 F1 season
Latifi was quiet during his debut season. He didn't manage to beat George Russell in any qualifying session. He was often far away in the races. He didn't exactly dominate debutant Jack Aitken when he replaced Russell in the penultimate race.
The chances of George Russell and Nicholas Latifi competing for the points is still small but we can expect some gains with Williams' new investors.
