Latifi was announced last week as the team’s new driver for the 2020 F1 season alongside George Russell. He will test for them at Yas Marina tomorrow:

We’re really excited that we’ve been able to announce this. It’s obviously been a long time coming. Not so much of a surprise for anybody, but we’re really pleased that Nicholas is going to step up next year and something that we have been or have had under consideration for a while, [we’ve had] a lot of conversations internally and obviously with Nicholas as well.

We also wanted to afford Nicholas for the opportunity to continue the F2 campaign and focus on that rather than being distracted by any earlier kind of announcement. But it probably was an inevitability and one that we’re really delighted about and really looking forward to seeing how Nicholas does next year.

He’s been a fantastic part of the team this year as our reserve driver. He’s done a number of [first practice] sessions and test days.

I think he just has the right kind of personality as well that we’re looking for in our drivers at Williams, so [I’m] really pleased.
