The Israeli driver has been in the academy since the end of 2019, driving for William in a number of Friday practice sessions alongside his F2 commitments.

Nissany replaced George Russell in first practice at the French Grand Prix during the 2021 campaign, and also featured at the Spanish Grand Prix earlier in the season in Barcelona.

Williams has yet to announce if Nissany will be handed more practice opportunities in 2022 with Nicholas Latifi teaming up with Alexander Albon this season.

He will remain in F2 for a fourth year, remaining with DAMS, who has recently announced its change of ownership with former F1 driver Charles Pic taking over the team.

Nissany scored his maiden F2 podium in 2021 around the streets of Monaco, ultimately securing 16th overall in the drivers' championship.

American driver Logan Sargeant, who will also compete in F2 with Carlin, joined the academy on the eve of the United States GP weekend.

F3 driver Zak O’Sullivan is also part of the roster with the academy undergoing significant changes under Williams' new management, headed by new sporting director Sven Smeets.

The new F2 and F3 seasons get underway next month in Bahrain on March 18-20.
