Williams also confirmed last month that the Canadian driver, 27, will be leaving the team when his contract expires at the end of the campaign.

But with five races left on the calendar, there is still time for Latifi to go out with a bang.

Although it looks unlikely that he will be able to do anything special at the Suzuka Circuit in Japan after he had problems remembering the layout of the track.

During FP2 Latifi hilariously swerved right way before the final chicane and ended up down a dead end.

He was forced to do a U-turn when faced by the barriers after seemingly getting confused by the track layout.

Latifi blamed the car for the mishap, saying over the radio: “The car feels strange.”

But F1 fans weren’t buying it.

One joked on social media: “Love how he say ‘car felt strange’ styled that one out.”

Another wrote with laughing emojis: “Tried to blame car as well.”

In Latifi’s defence, torrential rain made for awful conditions in Japan with visibility almost impossible for the drivers.

And it wasn’t just him who struggled.

Mick Schumacher lost control and wrecked his car after spinning out at turn seven due to the soggy surface.
