Nissany to get another run out for Williams F1
Trident’s Roy Nissany will get his second Formula 1 Free Practice drive for Williams at the Italian Grand Prix held at Monza.
The Israeli who lies seventeenth in the driver’s championship with five points to his name this season will once again replace the 2018 Formula 2 Champion George Russell for the session.
Nissany’s goals for the session will be to help out with Williams’s Friday morning engineering program, he will balance with his Formula 2 practice and qualifying session commitments with Trident.
Williams’s head of vehicle performance Dave Robson talked of Nissany’s role in the first practice session whilst also praising the twenty-five-year-old’s performance in Barcelona.
“We welcome back Roy Nissany, who will drive George’s car during FP1 this weekend. Roy did an excellent job in Barcelona and again he will play a vital role in our Friday engineering plan before George takes over in FP2. We will be concentrating on rear wing performance as well as looking at some development items.”
Nissany hopes that his second practice run in the Williams will see a greater level of experience shown from his debut run in Barcelona and that the work put in Williams’s simulator comes good as he relishes driving on the Monza circuit a track that Nissany loves.
“After the great session in Barcelona, I am really looking forward to driving at Monza. This legendary track is one of my favorites, as it is where I had my first single-seater win. I’m sure it will be emotional, but as always, I will switch on my robot mode to ensure I will be fully focused on completing my job for the team. This FP1 session, I will have more experience, greater confidence and I feel even better than before, ahead of jumping in the car. Of course, we will do more preparations in the simulator at the factory this week following Spa. I am keen to get in the car and release that clutch lever.”
