Nyck de Vries (Williams): Denied entry to England / Formula 1

At the Italian Grand Prix in Monza, 27-year-old hero de Vries made his first-class Formula 1 debut: ninth place in Williams. Things went much less effectively when attempting to get into England.


Two of Monza’s sizzling matters: World champion Max Verstappen’s fifth consecutive victory and the spectacular Grand Prix debut of his Dutch compatriot de Vries.

The karting world champion and 2019 Formula 2 champion instantly scored championship factors within the GP Classic, ninth at Williams’ service, as a alternative for Alex Albon (appendectomy). At Monza, De Vries grew to become the seventeenth Dutchman to compete in a Grand Prix as a part of the Formula 1 World Championship. He was the sixth driver in his nation to rating factors after Count Carel de Beaufort and Le Mans winner Gijs van Lennep. Verstappen, Kristian Albers and World Champion Max Verstappen.

At 1.67m, De Vries will get quite a lot of reward, and rightly so: since Brazilian Felipe Nasr completed fifth with Sauber in Australia in 2015, no GP rookie has accomplished higher than Nyck de Vries! Carlos Sainz and Yuki Tsunoda, like De Vries, completed ninth within the first Grand Prix. Nyck de Vries thus began even higher than famous person Max Verstappen, who didn’t end his first Grand Prix in Melbourne in 2015, however then scored factors in his second outing in Malaysia (seventh place).

Before De Vries, solely 19 drivers had scored factors within the first race within the final 25 years. With this magnificent efficiency, De Vries has talked himself via nearly each staff that also has cockpits left. With Williams confirming Nicolas Latifi is not going to be supplied a brand new contract, there are many indicators staff boss Jost Capito has religion within the Dutchman de Vries.

Alex Albon is recovering from surgical procedure however it’s not completely sure that the Londoner will probably be ready to drive in Singapore. So De Vries wished Williams to go to England to follow in a simulator for the road circuit. But he could not get it.

De Vries says on his social channels: “Entry denied for my 7.10 flight to London! After Brexit, the European Identity Card is not a sound journey doc. My passport is at the moment on the Japanese Embassy – for a visa due to Suzuka. My different passport has expired. Gone. England tour so blast. Out of the home and early within the weekend.”
