F1: Latifi denies rumors of post-Canada axe
(GMM) Nicholas Latifi has hit back at claims that his first home race in Canada this weekend could be his last ever Formula 1 event.
Rumors are swirling not just about a supposed two-year Williams deal for reigning Formula 2 champion Oscar Piastri for 2023 and 2024, but that Alpine’s loan of the young Australian could begin almost immediately.
“I know that I will drive until the end of the season,” Canadian Latifi, 26, is quoted by France’s Auto Hebdo.
“I have nothing much more to add.
“I know of course that I have to increase my performance. I’m obviously not happy with the way things are going, so I’m busy trying to improve myself,” he said.
