Latifi: Talk about replacing Kubica is just a rumorMay 29, 2019
Reserve rider Williams Nicholas Latifi will take part in six training sessions during the season, starting with the Grand Prix of Canada, where he will probably sit behind the wheel of Robert Kubica. The leader of the personal competition in Formula 2 enthusiastically waiting for the home stage, but doubts that he will replace the Pole in the remaining races.
Nicholas Latifi: “Last year I also conducted a training session in Canada. The performance on the home track is the best moment in my racing career at the moment. Great to sit behind the wheel of a Formula 1 in front of family and friends. Looking forward to next friday. It doesn’t matter whether you’re home or not, the goal of any workout is to successfully complete the session and direct the team along the right path. I still do not have 100% confidence, but I think that in training I will replace Kubica.
As for the conversations that I will spend the remaining races instead of Robert – all this is just a rumor. I do not have Superlicences, I am fully focused on the fight for the title in Formula 2, so it is unrealistic. If someone told me that I should get behind the wheel, I am ready for this, but without the Super License I have no right to chase in Formula 1, so I don’t think about it. All this is just a rumor. As far as I know, this year with Williams will not work.
My goal is to get into Formula 1, and if I now win the title in Formula 2, then ideally I would like to play in Formula 1 next year, and not skip the season, as some champions did. But I do not think about it yet. Formula 1 is such that the title in Formula 2 does not give any guarantees. It is important to be in the right place at the right time, you need opportunities and luck. My goal is to compete in Formula 1 in 2020, but let’s see how events will develop. ”
