Alex Albon Returns to Formula 1 2022 Season With Williams F1

After completing an agreement to race with Williams in 2022, Alex Albon will return to the Formula One grid, while Nicholas Latifi will return for a third season with the British team.

After losing his race seat to Sergio Perez, Albon has served as a reserve and test driver for Red Bull this season. However, as it became evident that a seat with the works team or AlphaTauri was not viable, the two-time podium finisher has been lobbying for a racing return outside the Red Bull family for several months.

courtesy of F1.com For some weeks, Albon has been the favorite for a spot at Williams, with the team praising his expertise and speed. Despite criticism from top rival Mercedes, Williams’ engine supplier, Red Bull and Williams have pushed hard to make a transaction materialize.


Meanwhile, Latifi has improved his game this year, and Williams was delighted with his development and improved performance in comparison to outgoing teammate George Russell, so they were eager to keep him on.

“Alex is one of the most promising young talents in motorsport, and he has extensive F1 knowledge thanks to his stint at Red Bull. His repeated podium finishes attest to his speed as a driver, and we’re confident he’ll fit right in with the Grove team. Nicholas, on the other hand, has continually impressed us with his hard work, diligence, and good attitude throughout the last three years. As evidenced by his points scoring finishes this season, he has continued to develop during his time at Williams and has matured into an excellent F1 driver.

Its been Difficult to get back into the form when you take a year out of f1 and totally out of the practice and speed. As we see that the George Russell believe back in the 2020 that Alex Albon will be back and they all three reunite all together and Because of F1’s new technical requirements, as well as the team’s new owners, management, and technical personnel, the team is going in a more competitive path.

George Russell Joins Mercedes F1 From 2022

George Russell Joins Mercedes F1 From 2022

September 7, 2021 / By Zunair Tahir / News F1

George Russell has been announced as Lewis Hamilton’s 2022 teammate after signing a long-term contract with Mercedes. Russell, 23, has been a Mercedes junior driver since 2017 and gets his opportunity after three seasons in Formula One with Williams.

Russell stated, “It’s a momentous day for me personally and professionally, but it’s also a day of mixed feelings.” “I’m both delighted and honored to be joining Mercedes next year, which is a major professional step for me, but it also means saying goodbye to my Williams teammates and friends. It’s been a privilege to work with each and every member of the team, as well as to represent the Williams name in Formula One.

“I’d be lying if I claimed I wasn’t ecstatic about the prospect of next season. It’s a tremendous chance that I want to seize with both hands. But I have no illusions about the magnitude of the task; it will be a steep learning curve.

Valtteri has established a high bar for himself, regularly producing victories, pole positions, and contributing to many championship triumphs. My goal must be to repay Toto [Wolff, Squad Principal], the team, and the board’s faith in me by ensuring that I contribute to the team’s continued success, and I want to make my new teammates proud.

Russell, who also paid respect to Williams, said, “It’s a big chance that I want to seize with both hands.” “However, I have no illusions about the magnitude of the task; it will be a steep learning curve.”

Mercedes evaluated the known quantity of Bottas – who has battled but failed to defeat seven-time champion Hamilton over the course of a season – against their emerging F1 prodigy, Russell.

In the end, they chose the man who, in addition to blazing down the grid at Williams, excelled in his one-off outing in the Mercedes last December in Bahrain when standing in for Hamilton.

Pierre Gasly and Yuki Tsunoda have been announced as AlphaTauri’s drivers for the 2022 Formula One season. The two drivers have been honoured for their contributions and excellent achievements thus far in the 2021 season. Tsunoda joins Gasly at the club for the 2021 season.

For the 2021 season, Tsunoda has joined Gasly’s team. Despite his inconsistent performance, the team decided to extend his contract.

Gasly finished third in this year’s Azerbaijan Grand Prix, started and finished fourth over the weekend at Zandvoort, and is now ninth in the Drivers’ standings.

Tsunoda, on the other hand, came into Formula One with a great reputation but has failed to live up to it so far, with a succession of crashes and failures to make it to the second half of qualifying sessions stalling his development.
He has, however, scored 18 points and has been granted a second opportunity in 2022 to return Red Bull adviser Helmut Marko’s trust in him.

The 21-year-old remarked, “I’m extremely happy to be continuing with Scuderia AlphaTauri for a second season.”

“It’s a great opportunity, and I’m grateful to the team and Dr. Marko for allowing me to expand my Formula 1 expertise.

“I have a wonderful connection with Pierre; I’ve already learnt a lot from him this year, and his expertise has allowed me to continue to develop my own talents, so it’s fantastic to be continuing my F1 adventure with him.

“Having recently relocated to Faenza, I am settling in well with the club and am excited for the next season.”
