Who’re a few of the potential replacements for Latifi at Williams?

2022-09-23 11:30:17

After three-seasons, Nicholas Latifi’s Method 1 profession at Williams is coming to an finish after the staff introduced his departure after the 2022 marketing campaign.

The affable Canadian has not had the profession he hoped for, with simply two factors finishes and earned himself an unfair place in F1 ignominy after his crash on the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix triggered that Security Automobile.

However Williams have determined that Latifi is just not the proper man to assist drive the staff ahead and again into the midfield and be common factors contenders.

That activity will now be shouldered by Alex Albon and his new teammate, who Williams say will likely be introduced “sooner or later.”

So, who’re the most important contenders for the 2023 trip?

Two most important contenders for Williams seat

The logical, and apparent two contenders to switch Latifi already each have hyperlinks to Williams.

Logan Sergeant or Nyck De Vries are the main two drivers – each coming with appreciable upsides.

Sergeant is a member of the Williams Driver Academy and has loved a comparatively profitable Method 2 marketing campaign in 2022 with two wins to date.

Nonetheless, his kind has tailed off in current instances, with 5 retirements within the final 9 races permitting title ambitions to show right into a struggle for second with Theo Pourchaire behind run-away champion Felipe Drugovich.

In the meantime, on the plus aspect, Sergeant is American and F1 is fairly eager to get an American driver on the grid – as are the groups in what could be a significant advertising and marketing coup. The current Purple Bull chase for Colton Herta attests to that a lot.

However an American driver would have to be in front-running, or high-midfield equipment as an alternative of trundling round combating for the odd Q3 or factors place.

On this present F1 increase, an American driver is desired, nevertheless it have to be dealt with in the proper approach, on the proper time. If Williams had been nearer to the midfield frequently, the transfer would make extra sense than it does on paper for the time being.

As for De Vries, after years of making an attempt to get to F1 – it appears he has three groups swooning over him for 2023.

Alpine, AlphaTauri and Williams are all within the companies of the 2019 Method 2 champion – with Williams being the place he impressed with ninth on debut on the Italian Grand Prix, subbing for an ailing Albon.

As Williams is in its rebuilding stage, it wants an skilled driver to work with Albon to drive the staff ahead.

With a Method E title and years spent as a Mercedes reserve behind him, De Vries is the standout selection.

The left-field candidates

Though his departure from Haas is extensively anticipated, Mick Schumacher nonetheless has a “50-50” likelihood of staying on the staff for 2023, in line with boss Gunther Steiner.

Schumacher is fast however lacks consistency and is susceptible to the odd massive crash.

A transfer to the extra relaxed environment of Williams may show helpful nevertheless it does look as if the German will depart F1 on the finish of 2022, with a return actually potential someday sooner or later.

An out of doors candidate could be W Collection racer Jamie Chadwick who nonetheless harbours hopes of changing into the primary feminine to race in F1 since Lella Lombardi nearly 50 years in the past.

Nonetheless, a transfer from W Collection straight to F1 is just not going to occur.

There’s a big gulf between the 2, with Chadwick’s finest hopes being a while in Method 2 or Method 3, if she will lastly discover a seat.

Occasional FP1 outings for Williams will not be out of the query, however an F1 race drive continues to be far on the horizon for Chadwick.
