Nicholas Latifi will play for the second time with the “new” Williams this weekend in Hungary, where he scored his first points in F1 last year.
The Canadian pilot has been declared on the sidelines as the transfer window for the 2023 season enters its final phase.
His steering is highly coveted, with Oscar Piastri frequently mentioned alongside US Williams Racing Academy hopeful Logan Sargeant who is currently shining in Formula 2.

He will try to repeat this performance this weekend to try to save his place and since the French Grand Prix, Williams has improved, as has his teammate Alex Albon for a few races.

“The season begins now for me, he believes. The speed has miraculously returned, it is up to me to take advantage of it, not only to compare with Alex but also with our direct competitors. »
