Charrel Jalving: “Just heard that the @NicholasLatifi deal to @WilliamsRacing for next year is complete. He will take the place of Kubica.”

4 full years in F2/GP2 and he’s now only just getting towards the front when it’s probably one of the weaker years in terms of driver quality. Yet he’s still no way near De Vries in points. I can see Russell having an easier time beating his team mate next year than he has had even this year.

level 2

I can’t wait for Russel too completely destroy him.

level 2

I’d rather bring back Sirotkin

level 2

Yet he’s still no way near De Vries in points.

Not because De Vries is that quick but because Latifi is so inconsistent and error prone (alongside Sette Câmara, Ghiotto and Aitken).

level 2

Well, you act like taking average drivers is something new for Williams. I don’t even blame them. Why put in a talent that’s cost you money while they already know that they won’t do anything special in 2020. Take the money and aim for 2021 should be my suggesting. I highly doubt their 2020 contender will be two seconds faster than this brick. Being faster than Kubica shouldn’t really be a challenge, even for Latifi.

level 1

Russell won F2 in his rookie season by a mile.

Latifi placed 9th in the same year, while having already raced 2 full seasons before.

He’ll get his ass blasted to the Moon and back.

level 2

Well at least Russell will look good in comparison but tbh it’d probably be better for him to have a Grosjean or Hülkenberg to test him if the car still isn’t competitive.

level 2

It’s strange, because latifi actually had a really good season in 2017 in F2, but he couldn’t seem to cope at all with the 2018 car

level 1

He’ll get torn apart by Russell I reckon.

level 2

Yeah. It’s not going to be good.

And I know Kubica hasn’t done that well but, I dunno, I don’t think Latifi would have gotten that point, just saying.

level 2

I’m straight up disappointed and he hasn’t even participated in a race yet.

Stroll haters will have a field day with Latifi. Latifi is so bad, I can’t believe he’s even in the running for an F1 seat.

level 1

When was the last time such a poor performer in the junior series got a seat?

Seven years and two hundred and thirty eight starts in junior series, and he’s won 7 races.

level 2

I’d say Haryanto in 2016 and he didn’t get to F1 even remotely on talent but rather that the Indonesian government paid for his seat at Manor and then he got booted out because they ran out of funds or something.

level 1

He is currently 2nd in the F2 championship, 2nd to 5th is just separated by 17 points.

Where does he need to finish to get the Enough license points?

level 2

20 SL points from F2 in 2017, 4 SL points from F2 in 2018, so a P5 finish (20 SL points) in F2 this year is enough.

level 2

5th. He needs 16 points, 5th is worth 20.
