Ahaed of the 2019 Formula 1 finale in Abu Dhabi, Williams has confirmed Nicholas Latifi will replace Robert Kubica at the team for the 2020 Formula 1 season.

With Latifi joining Williams by stepping up from Formula 2, following a number of FP1 outings for the British team this season, it completed the 2020 F1 driver grid after both Red Bull and Toro Rosso organised its driver line-up at the United States Grand Prix.

The Canadian driver become the sole rookie on the F1 grid next season, with Esteban Ocon returning at Renault following one season on the sidelines as Mercedes reserve and test driver. Nico Hulkenberg and Robert Kubica are leaving the sport as a result of the changes at Renault and Williams respectively.

Scuderia Toro Rosso will be renamed Scuderia Alpha Tauri, the name of Red Bull’s clothing company, in 2020.
