Rumour: Kubica to be replaced by Latifi at Williams

The return of Robert Kubica was a welcome sight to many in the Formula 1 world. But rumours suggest it might well be short-lived. Canadian newspaper Le Journal de Montreal reports that Williams is thinking about replacing him with Nicholas Latifi.

Kubica's story in 2019 has been painful, to say the least. Although he's not expected to finish in the points with the car he's got, rookie George Russell has beaten him in every Grand Prix.

The Canadian newspaper Le Journal de Montreal reports that the dream return is coming to an end. "According to our information, it's time for a big decision within the British team. Kubica apparently has a clause in his contract stating that he can be replaced during the season."

The rumoured replacement for Kubica is young Canadian driver Nicholas Latifi, their current reserve driver. He tops the Formula 2 championship.
