Nicholas Latifi is not at all happy with the performance of the Williams car in 2022. The Canadian wants to know why Alexander Albon always beats him race after race. While Formula 1 simply believes Albon is better than him, Latifi already suspects there is a difference in the chassis of the British team’s cars.
“We lost a lot of rhythm from the start. Low fuel, high fuel, when the tires are good, when you manage tire degradation. I mean, we’re way off. We have to use this two week break and try to figure it out, see if we can find something. – said Latifi, who thinks the problem with the Williams car could be much deeper.
“For me it has to be something very fundamental because there is no situation or condition on the track, not even when people are not pushing and I feel like I am, the pace is competitive. So let’s see, try resetting at Silverstone and go from there.” – said the Canadian, who thinks he has little to do with the Williams car in 2022.
Latifi: “Well beyond the question of riding style”
“I think it’s way beyond the riding style issue. Of course at the start of the season there was some of that, maybe you can still attribute some of the time delta turn to that.- said the Canadian, who ended by saying that the problem could only be in his car.
“But for me, looking way beyond the confines of confidence that I had at the start, the pace just isn’t there. There are situations where I just don’t feel like my car is capable of doing what I see it doing in the data, which isn’t a nice feeling. It’s a bit intriguing. So again, we’ll be using this two week break to see what we can watch. – concluded Latifi, who is yet to score points with Williams in the 2022 Formula 1 season.
