Nicholas Latifi will depart from Williams Racing at the end of the 2022 Formula 1 season, the team announced Sept. 23.
Latifi is currently in his third season with Williams, first joining the team at the start of 2020.
He’s made 55 starts and earned seven championship points.
“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 said in a team release. “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.”
The Canadian driver earned a career-best finish of seventh at the 2021 Hungarian Grand Prix. He earned his second top 10, a ninth place, at Spa Francorchamps the following race.
So, I’m parting ways with @WilliamsRacing at the end of the year.
Honoured to have represented them for the last 3 years. A massive thanks to the whole team – it’s been an incredible journey and I’ve enjoyed every second of it.
