Williams reserve driver Nicholas Latifi will enjoy his third successive FP1 outing with the British outfit in Brazil, concluding his series of six Friday runs with the team in 2019.

Latifi was offered FP1 mileage in Canada, France and Belgium before undertaking his three-session run in Mexico, Austin and Brazil.

"I am excited to get another opportunity to jump back in the car in Brazil," said Latifi who will be replacing Robert Kubica on Friday morning.

"It will be my third FP1 in a row, in such a short period of time, so that’s good for the rhythm.

"I drove in FP1 there last year, so I know the track and that will help me get up to speed.

"It is a unique circuit, and an older style compared to the more modern venues. It is smaller, tighter, but the track has a lot of character and has been on the calendar for a while.

"I’m looking forward to getting out there and experiencing it once again."

Williams has indicated that it won't divulge its 2020 line-up until after F1 season finale in Abu Dhabi but Latifi is rumored to have signed a deal to race for the Grove-based outfit in 2020, joining George Russell.

Latifi will also conclude his campaign in the FIA Formula 2 championship in Abu Dhabi where the DAMS driver will target a runner-up spot behind series winner Nyck de Vries.
