Deputy Team Principal Claire Williams says the team has not yet decided on who will partner George Russell in 2020. She adds they are still reviewing and talking to “a few candidates”.

“We weigh what we will do,” said Williams

“We have a few candidates on our list that we are currently reviewing and talking to. We take the time to think about it and make sure we make the right decision for 2020.

After Nico Hulkenberg dropped off as an option, the obvious favourite for the seat would be Williams’ current development driver Nicholas Latifi, a fact which is not lost on Claire.

“Nicholas has a similar character to George, he rolls up his sleeves and does the job we ask him for.

“He’s very likable, very impressive, he gets along with everyone in the team, and of course there’s the advantage of knowing the team now.”
