Nicholas Latifi, the 26-year-old driver, is currently racing with Williams but is close to leaving the sport after consistently underperforming. Latifi has been outperformed by his teammate in all but one race this season. Latifi is in trouble as he has dark clouds over his career this season, with similar cars he has been totally dominated by Alex Albon.

But Latifi thinks the car isn’t the same as for Alex, but the latter overtook the Canadian in his first since returning to F1. Alex has been in points twice this season in the same championship P10 car. Nicholas spoke about his confidence being hurt by his teammate’s performance.

“If I look way beyond that and beyond whatever confidence limitations I had in the beginning, the pace just wouldn’t be there. There are situations where I just don’t feel like my car is capable of doing what I’m seeing from the data, which isn’t a nice feeling.” said Latifi.

With the next round 10 of the 2022 Championship taking place at Silverstone, with hopes of a ‘fresh start’ Nicholas enters the weekend with plenty of positive results. Latifi is hoping to get in the points this weekend and will work to find the pace with his engineer.

“We need to use this two-week hiatus to understand why and if we can find anything. For me it has to be something very basic. There’s no situation or condition on the track, even if people aren’t giving it their all and I feel the pace is in line with our competitors. We will see. Try going to Silverstone and reset it and go from there. Nicholas said.

Nicholas Latifi is P21 in the Champion and the only driver not to have scored points this season, aside from Mick Schumacher von Haas and third driver Nico Hulkenberg.
