September 10, 2022

Mercedes reserve driver Nyck de Vries will be making his Formula One debut at this weekend’s Italian Grand Prix. De Vries will be filling in for British team Williams’ Alexander Albon, who will miss out due to appendicitis.

De Vries, who is a former Formula 2 and Formula E champion, had already filled in for Aston Martin’s Sebastian Vettel during Free Practice 1 during the Italian Grand Prix weekend. 

Williams released a statement, which read:

Williams Racing can confirm that, after feeling unwell this morning and seeking medical advice from the FIA and local hospital, Alex Albon is now undergoing treatment for appendicitis. 

Following on from this, we can confirm that the team’s Reserve Driver Nyck de Vries will drive in place of Alex for the remainder of the Italian Grand Prix weekend. Alex is in good spirits and the team wishes him a speedy recovery.

De Vries currently serves as the reserve driver for Mercedes and even participated in FP1 in France for them earlier this year. He is also one of the drivers rumoured to replace Williams’ Nicholas Latifi, who will be his teammate for his Formula One debut.
