The Williams Racing Formula One team, partnered by Acronis, goes into the final round of the 2022 season in Abu Dhabi fully focused on ending the season on a high note.
It has certainly been a season of ups and downs for the famous Grove based outfit, Alexander Albon, Nicholas Latifi and Nyck de Vries contributing to the points tally with top ten finishes in Japan, Italy, Belgium, Miami and the Australian Grand Prix.
Now, as the curtain sets on another season of exciting racing, the team is hopeful of a return to the points at a circuit that should suit the characteristics of the FW44 machine.

“The final event of the season takes place in Abu Dhabi and we will be looking to finish 2022 on a high and also begin our preparations for 2023,” commented Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance.
“Abu Dhabi should suit the FW44 better than Interlagos and we are keen to finish the season with a strong showing. Pirelli have provided the softest compounds in their range for this race event and once the track has cleaned-up and we are into the evening sessions, these compounds should work well.”
The final race of the season also marks the last time that Nicholas Latifi will drive for the team, as he is set to be replaced by reserve driver Logan Sargeant.
“It’s sad to be at the last race but it’s been a great three years at Williams with a lot of ups and downs. Hopefully I can end the season on as high a note as possible,” commented the likeable Canadian.
For regular teammate Albon, there is a hope that he can further add to the points that he collected in Australia, Miami and Belgium.
“It’s the last race of the season so we’ll see how we go this week, obviously wanting to end on a high note and give some motivation to everyone during the winter season,” added Albon. “This track should suit us more than the last two races and with it being Nicky’s last race with the team, hopefully we can all put on a good race for him.”
