Start in slow motion for Alex Albon and Nicholas Latifi in the first day of free practice valid for the Canadian Grand Prix, the ninth round of the 2022 Formula 1 World Championship. After yesterday’s FP2, the Williams riders were unable to go beyond the 18th and 19th position, struggling and not a little in terms of rhythm. A condition that will have to push the English team to take steps forward in view of tonight’s qualifying.
“Actually, in some respects, it wasn’t a bad day”, said Alexander Albon. “We have done a good job, although we are aware that there is still a lot to do. In FP2 I think we went the wrong way, but in the same way we collected a lot of data to look at. We will find a good compromise ”.
Here instead the evaluations of Nicholas Latifi: “Overall it was a smooth first day. Of course it was special to start my weekend at home and drive in front of the Canadian fans. I honestly felt a lot of support in preparing for this weekend. On the track it was difficult, especially with the pace of the car. We lack performance. We must continue to work to try to extract more performances in view of the qualification “.
