It was Latifi who led the way when Williams snapped a 38-race, two-year scoreless drought when he finished seventh for his first F1 points in Hungary in 2021, a reward for his patience. Equally worth the wait for the Montreal native? A chance to race at the circuit where he fell in love with F1 as a kid, with the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve back on the calendar after a pandemic-prompted hiatus.
Russell's graduation to Mercedes sees Latifi reunite with former DAMS GP2 teammate Alex Albon, the pair previously racing together in 2018 as a part of a field featuring Russell and Lando Norris.
