Nyck De Vries had a weekend to remember in Monza after making a sudden F1 debut to replace Alex Albon who had an emergency appendicitis surgery.

De Vries clearly outshone Nicholas Latifi after scoring two points for Williams who is yet to secure a seat for the next season.

Monza was a good demonstration from the former Formula e champion as he believes every time in a F1 car counts as an audition for the future.

“And any time you get a chance to drive a Formula 1 car it is a kind of job interview and an audition. You've got to take those opportunities, but you've also got to use them sensibly because there's always a trade-off of doing too much and too little.”

De Vries is grateful that everything worked out well in the traditional Italian circuit.

“I am just grateful that it worked out well and played into our hands. We took some points and it was a great performance. And no one can take that away from us."

About his future, De Vries was backed by seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton who said on Saturday that he deserved a place on the 2023 grid.

The Dutch driver said he wouldn´t be standing on the grid if he didn´t deserve it and added the decision on a driver line up is not up to him.

"But we're always expected to do a good job and it's not up to me to decide any driver line-up. This world is very volatile and it's not only merit that counts. So, it's out of my control.”

De Vries has been in talks about the future as he confirmed to Dutch Tv Show Humberto op Zaterdag.

"I have been in talks with Williams for a long time, and I was also able to make my debut there last weekend. That would be a logical step. Alpine I have been in contact with since July, and I will test for them in Budapest next week. I will fly there on Monday. And as the media had noticed yesterday, I went to Austria to meet Helmut Marko. Those are the facts."

Whatever happens next season De Vries will never forget his debut.

"But this no one can take away from me, so regardless of the future whether I'm here or not, I can look back on a proud debut and first moment in Formula 1. I enjoyed it."
