Stroll was given a penalty for the incident.[197] He finished 16th in the race, struggling for pace.[198] At the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, Latifi finished 16th in the race.[199] By this point Latifi had yet to finish higher than 16th place while teammate Albon had scored a point. This saw Williams team boss Jost Capito to "rebuilt [his] confidence".[200][201]

At the Miami Grand Prix, Latifi secured his highest finish up till that point, 14th in an incident-packed race.[202] The Spanish Grand Prix saw him finish 16th, the first time he finished ahead of Albon as teammates.[203] Latifi crashed on the formation lap of the Monaco Grand Prix, but managed to start the race, which he finished in 15th.[204][205] After the race, Carlos Sainz accused Latifi of costing him the victory by holding him up under blue flags.[206] At his first home Canadian Grand Prix, Latifi crossed the line in 16th place.[207][208] Due to poor performances, Latifi was rumoured to be replaced by 2021 F2 champion Oscar Piastri following the Canadian Grand Prix, but Capito declined that statement.[209]

Latifi at the 2022 Austrian Grand Prix, he would fail to finish the race.

Latifi reached the third qualifying session (Q3) for the first time at the British Grand Prix, qualifying tenth.[210][211] He improved to eighth at the start, but suffered floor damage later and eventually finished 12th.[212] At the Austrian Grand Prix, Latifi once again suffered floor damage and retired on lap 48 to conserve engine wear.[213] At the French Grand Prix, Latifi retired after colliding with Kevin Magnussen on lap 38.[214] At the Hungarian Grand Prix, Latifi topped the final practice session in wet conditions.[215] However, he set the 20th fastest (and slowest) time of qualifying having made a mistake at the final corner of the Hungaroring on his final attempt in Q1 despite being fastest through the first sector.[216] Front wing damage compromised the start of his race, and he finished just behind Albon in 18th place.[217]

At the Belgian Grand Prix, Latifi qualified in 17th place but started 11th due to grid penalties.[218] On lap 2 of the race, Latifi spun and tagged Valtteri Bottas which knocked the Alfa Romeo driver out of the race. Latifi pitted for repairs and finished the race a lap down, in 18th place.[219] Soon after that, before the Dutch Grand Prix, he revealed the criteria to secure his seat for the 2023 F1 season, which was to "deliver [Williams] some consistent performances."[220]

At the Italian Grand Prix, teammate Albon was forced to withdraw from the weekend following FP2 due to appendicitis.[221] This meant that Latifi's teammate for the qualifying session and Grand Prix was Nyck de Vries, who beat him to the F2 title in 2019.[222][223] De Vries reached Q2 in the qualifying session, whilst Latifi didn't get out of Q1, missing a chicane on his final run.[224] In the race, De Vries scored points, finishing ninth, whilst Latifi finished 15th.[225][226] This meant that De Vries went ahead of Latifi in the Drivers' Championship.[227] At the Singapore Grand Prix, Latifi started last and his race ended on lap 7 when he collided with Zhou Guanyu, which caused a puncture for Latifi and ultimately his retirement from the race. Additionally, Latifi was given a five-place grid drop for next race at the Japanese Grand Prix.[228]

Having qualified last in Japan, Latifi pitted for intermediate tyres at the end of a safety car restart, and narrowly lost to Sebastian Vettel in the pit stops. It would be the right gamble, exiting in eighth. He held off Lando Norris to claim ninth place, and his first points of the season whilst describing it as a "nice reward".[229] His result lifted him from 21st to 20th in the drivers' championship.[230] Latifi finished last at the United States Grand Prix, as an early spin saw him ruin his pit strategy and was also compounded with a five-second penalty for forcing Mick Schumacher off track.[231] At the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Latifi ended his F1 career by being sent rearwards into the barriers by Schumacher. He later suffered a technical issue and retired.[232] Latifi ended the drivers' championship 20th in the championship with two points.[233]

Latifi left Williams at the end of the 2022 season after spending three seasons with the team and was replaced by F2 graduate Logan Sargeant.[234]
