Formula 1 – Williams: Nicholas Latifi Named Reserve Driver
Williams have named the 23-year-old, Nicholas Latifi as their reserve driver for 2019.
Previously, the Canadian, represented Force India as a development driver where he participated in some training sessions in 2018. Moreover, he is also a race-champ in Formula 2, which makes him an exciting future racing prospect.
Moreover at Williams, Latifi will be doing the following work as a reserve driver:
- 2 tire tests
- 6 practice sessions
- 1 day of pre-season testing
- 2 in-season test days.
He said it was an awesome chance to proceed with his improvement.
Latifi does not possess a F1 ‘super-licence’ yet, which means that he cannot venture in as a substitution at a great prix end of the week if a race driver was debilitated.
Latifi’s dad Michael is a businessperson who not long ago turned into a 10% investor in the McLaren Group.

Why not add F1 drivers with a Christmas theme, like Alain Frost or St.Nicholas Latifi or Nigel Snowmansell.
