Latifi "extremely disappointed" by Canadian GP cancellation

Latifi "extremely disappointed" by Canadian GP cancellation

Williams driver Nicholas Latifi has confessed himself to be "extremely disappointed" at the decision by Formula 1 to cancel the 2020 Canadian Grand Prix.

On Friday, F1 announced the cancellation of the Canadian, Mexico City, US and Brazilian grands prix, removing the chance for Latifi to race on home soil in his rookie season.

Speaking in a video on the Williams social media accounts, Latifi said: “I’ve just found out that unfortunately, we won’t be having a Canadian Grand Prix this year. Of course, I’m extremely disappointed.

“When I first found out I was going to race in Formula 1, that was the one I was looking forward to. It really is one of the best Grand Prix on the calendar.

“I don’t just say that because I’m Canadian, I know a lot of other teams and drivers will agree with me. It was going to be a big highlight, an experience that I was very much looking forward to.”

“Unfortunately, it will have to wait now."

Of the originally scheduled 22-grands prix, half have now been cancelled.

Latifi added: “The calendar this year is going to be looking quite different to normal, but we have to do what’s best for the world right now in the global pandemic and be as responsible as possible. I hope everyone is staying safe and staying healthy.

“Thankfully, next year I’m still going to be in Formula 1, so I’ll have to wait a little bit longer to experience my home Grand Prix.”
