Nicholas Latifi and Williams have officially parted ways for the 2023 season leaving Williams’ seat vacant and up for grabs.
Williams and Nicholas Latifi have officially ended their partnership after three seasons together in the sport.
The British team wrote on Twitter saying:
“Williams Racing and Nicholas Latifi will part ways at the end of the 2022 Season. We want to thank Nicky for his commitment and hard work over the last 3 years and wish him all the best in the next steps of his career.”
This, however, brings Mick Schumacher in play for the vacant seat. There are many candidates to fill the vacant seat alongside Alex Albon.
Mick Schumacher’s future looks uncertain with Haas. The German is at risk of losing his F1 seat with the American outfit.
Rumors of Mick coming to Haas increased when team principal Jost Capito claimed Schumacher to be ‘on the list.’
Capito told Sky Germany:
“Of course, you look at what the other drivers are doing. We haven’t decided on the second driver yet. We’re keeping our options open, and there are a lot of options.
“But there are also a lot of up-and-coming drivers when you see what’s happening in Formula 2. There are some good drivers who deserve a place in Formula 1. We also have to see what the other teams are doing.
“We also have contracts with the other team bosses, and you know relatively well what’s going on in the background. Mick is very fast and a good guy. He should be on the list of the teams that still have a seat.”
If Mick Schumacher happened to replace Nicholas Latifi at Williams, who comes at Haas? Moreover, in the past few races, Schumacher has shown consistent performance raising the question of whether he should really be released.
