Williams: We have more driver options than Albon and De Vries for 2022

Jost Capito says Williams have "much wider" options outside of Alexander Albon and Nyck de Vries as a replacement for George Russell, who is set to join Mercedes.

Williams CEO and Team Principal Jost Capito has revealed the team are looking at more than just two options for their second 2022 Formula 1 seat alongside Nicholas Latifi.

With confirmation of George Russell's move to Mercedes expected soon, Alexander Albon and Nyck de Vries have been linked to replace the Briton.

But Williams say other drivers are also in contention for the seat.

"There are others as well," Capito told RacingNews365.com and other select members of the press.

"There are others with Formula 1 experience and there are others who... young drivers who really push hard to get into Formula 1. It's not just those two, there are much wider options.

"There are a couple of drivers who are attractive and bring something to the team. You have different views you can have for next year. It's nothing right or wrong.

"You can have a driver who has Formula 1 experience, that is never negative. It's always a positive."

Current Formula 2 championship leader Guanyu Zhou could be an option for Williams next year.

Capito, who is isolating himself from his team after coming into close contact with Kimi Raikkonen who tested positive for COVID-19, insists there is "no time pressure" to make a driver announcement and has previously confirmed the team does not need a "pay driver".

"For next year, as the cars are new, and everybody has to learn to drive these new cars, you can also bring a newcomer in and a rookie in because then the gap is the smallest, as everybody has to get his head around driving a different car, it's like driving in a different category," added Capito.

"It's also an ideal point to bring somebody new into Formula 1 with the lowest risk. That's why we don't weigh options too much and we'll see how it turns out. We've got various good options.

"We [will] go for what is in our interest, what is the best for us, what we believe is the best solution. [We will] try to get this solution and then go from there.

"But at the moment we have more options and none of them is a bad option. We're quite relaxed about the situation."
