Nicholas Latifi: The under-fire F1 driver fighting for his future
Personable, articulate and devoid of the usual racing driver airs and graces, Nicholas Latifi is the last Formula 1 driver you’d expect to receive death threats, but such was the toxic legacy of his part in last year’s explosive season finale. And now, as ALEX KALINAUCKAS explains, he faces a battle to keep his place on the F1 grid…
It’s rather a wild scene on the terrace atop the Williams motorhome. That Nicholas Latifi amiably led GP Racing up here solo, without ‘handlers’, after greeting us in the Silverstone paddock three floors below says much about the man. The unforgivingly blustery wind sending ominous slate-grey clouds in the Canadian’s direction (and threatening to upset the pot plants) says much about the current state of his Formula 1 career.
Except, of course, it doesn’t – because this is Silverstone and any minute the heavy skies will give way to bright sunshine, heat ready to rapidly evaporate any lingering precipitation. And repeat. It is here that Latifi, whose 2022 season so far has been underwhelming – to put it generously – will reach Q3 for the first time in his career.

New developments are being pushed back to 2023, which could mask the technical development war ongoing...
Looking back to the early races of 2022 and Ferrari’s challenge to Red Bull and Max Verstappen was going better than many expected. But it has lost so much ground a surprise rival can even pip Charles Leclerc to runner-up in the standings if given the chance
The Hart-powered Jordan 194 gave the team hope that the good times were just around the corner. Its 1994 steed wasn’t the start of a move up F1’s pecking order - even if the car did earn the Silverstone team a first pole position. But, as STUART CODLING explains, it did provide a platform for Jordan to become a manufacturer-supported squad.
