Video: Latifi's strange and hilarious mix-up in Japan

The rain that affected Friday’s day at the F1 Japanese GP left curious scenes, but probably the funniest and at the same time surprising was the one starring Nicholas Latifi, who could literally be said to have “lost” himself on the circuit .

The spray from the cars reduced visibility, and during the first minutes of FP2, after asking him from the Williams wall to return to the pits due to a possible problem with the car, he got into where he thought he could get to the pitlane, without realizing Realized that he had actually made a mistake and slipped into the Casio chicane runoffs .

He quickly found himself at a dead end and turned around, heading at last to the pits.

The Suzuka circuit has various configurations, like other world championship tracks, although F1 has used the same one, the ‘8’ shape, for many years. However, Latifi failed in his first edition of the Japanese GP in the top category, since it had not been raced there since before the pandemic.

As soon as he turned the wrong way, Latifi, who was fourth at the time when few had gone out on the track, opened the radio to say: “I don’t know what really happened there. The car… strange, I’m fine anyway “.

In the Spanish broadcast of DAZN F1, the commentators interpreted that message as a bad excuse, and now the question remains whether his message that the car had been made by a stranger was not to admit the mistake or if he was referring to some time before the maneuver in question.

In any case, on a wet day, Latifi left a curious scene in the second session of the day. Before, in the first, he had caused a yellow flag after going long in the hairpin of the second sector of Suzuka. However, despite stepping on the gravel loopholes, he was not damaged and was able to continue.

Latifi’s history caused comments to quickly emerge on social networks for his mistake, and that is that the Canadian has been “meme meat” for a long time in F1. And, after announcing that he will not continue in F1 2023 with Williams, many have already begun to miss him before he left.
