Now that Mercedes has announced the arrival of George Russell, 3 seats remain for the 2022 Formula 1 season. Who will occupy them? We present to you the main candidates.
Nicholas Latifi (Williams)
- Nationality: Canadian
- Age: 26 years old
- F1 Experience: 30 races
Racing drivers interested in the 2022 season can still submit their nomination to the Alfa Romeo and Williams tail teams. Alfa has one seat on the left, Williams 2.
There is a good chance that Nicholas Latifi will remain behind the wheel of Williams. Team boss Just Capito is satisfied with the collaboration with the 26-year-old Canadian (and financial support from his father).
Alex Albon (formerly Red Bull Red Bull)
- Thai Nationality
- Age: 25 years old
- Formula One Experience: 38 races – two podium finishes
Alex Albon had to give up the steering wheel for Red Bull at the end of last year. The British Thai couldn’t help Max Verstappen enough in his battle with world champion Mercedes.
Team boss Christian Horner is hoping to get an Albon race at Williams, but he doesn’t quite like main rival Mercedes. The Germans supply the engines to Williams.
Team leaders Toto Wolff (Mercedes) and Christian Horner (Red Bull) love to fencing.
Will Alex Albon return?
Nick de Vries (Formula E Champion)
- Nationality: Dutch
- Age: 26 years old
- F1 Experience: Mercedes driver test
Nick de Vries is Stoffel Vandoorne’s current teammate at Mercedes in Formula E, the championship the Dutchman won this year.
De Vries now wants to take a step higher and enter the premier motorsport category.
Or is it already in the jugs? Last weekend, de Vries had reached an agreement with Alfa Romeo in Zandvoort.
Although we see him as a Mercedes driver ending up at Williams as well.
Will Nick de Vries replace his electric Mercedes with a Formula 1 car?
Antonio Giovinazzi (Alfa Romeo)
- Nationality: Italian
- Age: 27 years old
- F1 Experience: 53 races
Antonio Giovinazzi has been driving an Alfa Romeo for 3 years and therefore knows the team well. Is that enough for an extra season in the Swiss racing stable?
On the Netflix series Drive to Survive, Giovinazzi announced that he could feel Mick Schumacher’s hot smell on his neck. Both come from the coaching staff for Ferrari, the current supplier of engines to Alfa Romeo Racing.
Is Alfa Romeo happy with Antonio Giovinazzi?
Mick Schumacher (Haas)
- Nationality: German
- Age: 22
- F1 Experience: 13 races
Mick Schumacher is still under contract with Team Haas, but this car is unpredictable. Will Michael Schumacher’s son move to Alfa Romeo?
There is a chance, though, that they don’t go much faster than the Haas out there. The car’s development for 2022 will play a major role for Schumacher Jr. Next season, Formula 1 regulations will change drastically, and the goal will be to provide more competitive cars.
Which team is Mick Schumacher racing for in his second season in Formula 1?
