D​an Ticktum released from Williams

T​he British driver was dropped by Red Bull and quickly swooped by Williams, but he finds himself losing his Williams backing too.

D​an Ticktum is no longer a Williams Development Driver it has been announced, with immediate effect.

A​fter being dropped by Red Bull following a failed Super Formula campaign in Japan, Ticktum was signed to Williams at the beginning of 2020.

U​nder Williams backing, the Brit launched his first charge on the Formula 2 Championship, finishing 11th overall come the end of the season. His start to 2021 has been considerably better, standing on the podium five times and winning a Sprint Race in Monaco.

Whilst competing in Formula 2 he also participated in simulator work for the British outfit, helping to develop the current and 2022 Williams F1 cars.

W​illiams confirmed to F1.com that Ticktum had been released from not only his development role, but from their driver academy, last week.

T​he exact reason as to why he was released remains unknown.

M​ore to follow.
