Nicholas Latifi, Williams FW42

The difficulty that helped define F1's newest addition

Williams has announced Nicholas Latifi will take its final seat for 2020, and in the process completed the grid for next year. But while he doesn't have a mindblowing junior record, there is more to Latifi than some observers may think

As Nicholas Latifi lay in a hospital bed in January 2018, he had no idea how much the situation was going to impact his season.

In terms of results, it led to a nightmare Formula 2 campaign - motorsport is a results-driven industry. But, ultimately, it helped shape him into a driver who won't do a bad job in Formula 1, and could even prove to do better than that.
