Motor Racing-The best qualifying results are not reassuring for the embarrassed Latifi

SILVERSTONE — Combat Williams The future of Formula One, driver Nicholas Latifi, may be questionable, but the Canadians have to leave without a fight by posting his best-ever qualifying result on Saturday, starting in 10th place at the British Grand Prix. I signaled.

There are rumors that Latifi will be replaced at Williams, but he rushes into the rain at Silverstone to team principal Jost Capito and puts himself in the fifth row of the grid. Reminded me of what I could do with Zhou Guanyu of China at Alfa Romeo on Sunday.

At the beginning of Saturday, Latifi rejected the talk that Latifi would be replaced before the end of the season, but he is vague about next year's driver lineup.

Australia's hottest Formula One prospect, Oscar Piastri, is the 2021 Formula 2 Champion and has been associated with several outfits, including Williams.

Latifi admitted that the season wasn't going as planned and the qualifying performance was little relieved, but Latifi showed that he was in F1.

"For me, it doesn't give me any more relief or comfort," Latifi told reporters. "It naturally builds confidence.

" I know these performances are possible and I need to know that it's worth joining F1 when things are going well. You can drive as fast as you can.

"Things aren't working, there's no secret about it.

" I'm not too relieved about this result. I haven't, but if that makes sense, I'm definitely happy. "

Teammate Alex Albon has a major upgrade package in his car and is comfortable Latifi's qualifying efforts were even more eye-catching as he was expected to move forward, but will start on the 16th when he was unable to get out of the beginning of the three qualifying sessions.

"I don't know what went wrong on his side of the garage," Latifi said. "From my point of view, I'm very happy to be able to get out of the first qualifying session of the year first and then into the first third quarter."

Despite the positive results Latifi was painfully realistic about the possibility of scoring points in the Sunday race.

"If all goes well, are the points realistic?" Said the 27-year-old Canadian. "Absolutely not.

" It's not pessimistic, it's a reality. "(Report by Steve Keating, edited by Clare Fallon)
