I don't follow F2 closely. How good is Latifi ?
Whilst his results in F2 have been good this year - this is his 5th or 6th year at that level and previous years results have been nothing special. Usually drivers that make it to F1 via the F2 route burst onto the scene and absolutely smash it in their 1st or 2nd F2 season.

Nikki Katz should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Latifi should be closer to Russell than kubica, but I doubt heíll regularly beat him.

Looking at his career on Wiki he looks like he has no chance against Russell. Never won a championship, only had 2 pole positions ever, in British F3 in 2013.

Given his level of funding, he looks plain awful.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicholas_Latifi

Nyck DeVries, the actual F2 champion, would have looked like the best choice in this year's F2 field or am I missing something other than money Nikki?

We have had worse drivers in F1, I say we still have plenty of talent in the series. Just a shame Hulk will be on his way out

The depth of talent in F1 currently is not in question here?

The point being made is whether Latifi is good enough...

Give him time. I expect him to be at least competent

Given time - competent.

Is competent what F1 should be aiming for.

I understand the mechanics of funding, and why talent alone will not see the best drivers on the grid. But if a team ever described their driver as 'competent', I would feel cheated.

I've seen this in business a few times too though (unfortunately). Our organisation states the we strive for excellence in everything we do - and then reward contractors for achieving 'satisfactory'!

I didnít say he may turn out competent, I said I donít expect to be anything less than that. He could be better than that, we never know until a driver goes in F1 how well he could do

If guys like latifi or stroll are ever better than mediocre or competent, it would say more about the actual talent level of the f1 grid than their talents. (And it would not be a positive).
