F2/F1 News: Williams Keep Nissany as Test Driver

Nissany had his first taste in Formula 1 last year.

"I am truly honoured to continue being part of Williams,"

Roy Nissany

Roy Nissany will continue to be Williams' test driver for the 2021 Formula 1 season. Williams have also announced that the Israeli driver will take part in a day of pre-season testing.

Nissany, 26, finished 19th overall in the 2020 Formula 2 season for Trident whilst fulfilling his role as Williams' test driver. He took part in several FP1 outings for the team in Spain, Italy and Bahrain respectively, along with a run in the post-season Abu Dhabi young driver test.

Staying with Williams for 2021 means that he will take part in three more FP1 sessions across the 2021 season along with a day of pre-season testing.

It's more continuity for Williams on the driver front, who are also retaining race drivers George Russell and Nichola Latifi in 2021.

Nissany has not yet been confirmed by Trident as their 2021 F2 driver, and drove for DAMS in the Bahrain post-season test last season.
