Latifi sees Williams as “always too far” and speaks of a “fundamental problem” in 2022



Nicholas Latifi admitted that he could not explain Williams ‘lack of pace, which he believes cannot compete with rivals’ pace even when they are not pushing.


In another disappointing year for Williams in Formula 1, where the team arguably has the worst car on the grid, Nicholas Latifi admitted that he still doesn’t fully understand why the FW44 doesn’t respond to the blow and fails to correlate with the data all the time. collected by engineers. For the Canadian, something that has not yet been discovered by the British team is bringing down the pace of expectations.

“We owe a lot to the pace, and this from the start,” explained Latifi. “With little petrol, with a lot of petrol, when the tires are good or when we manage, we are always very far away. We have to use these weeks to understand why and see if we can find something,” she complained.

“For me, it has to be something fundamental,” he admitted. “There is no situation or condition on the track, even when the riders are not pushing, that I feel the pace is there compared to our competitors, so let’s see. [Vamos] try to reset it on Silverstone and go from there, “he said.

Latifi acknowledged that Williams’ lack of confidence in the FW44 is a result of the poor performance it has had so far this season, but the driver suspects there is a problem beyond his driving style.

“For me, looking back and over the edge in the confidence I had, the pace just wasn’t there,” he explained. “There are situations where I just don’t feel like my machine is capable of doing what is shown in the data, which isn’t a great feeling to have,” he complained.

“It’s a bit intriguing. But again, we’re going to use this two-week break to see what we can analyze.”

With the two weeks of rest so much appreciated by Latifi for Williams to try to solve some of his problems, Formula 1 is only back next month. The British GP, on the traditional Silverstone circuit, will take place from 1 to 3 July.
