In 2022, Alex Albon will be a pilot Williams and will ride alongside Nicholas latifi. The Thai, member of the Red Bull Academy and former teammate of Max Verstappen, has been released from his contract with the Austrian team for next season so that he can join the English team. “We were impressed by his commitment to this role (reserve driver), explains Christian Horner. This is why we wanted to help him find a starting seat in Formula 1 ».

However, the structure at the top of the Manufacturers' ranking at the moment wishes to keep an eye on the situation of its former driver, with the possibility of offering him a new starting place for the 2023 season. Very satisfied with his work on the simulator , Christian Horner wishes “maintain a relationship with the pilot for future options”. If he will be behind the wheel of a motorized car Mercedes next year, Alex Albon “retains a link with Red Bull, which retains an option on its services if they are required in 2023”. The Thai driver, who has already participated in 38 Grands Prix in his career and won two podiums with Red Bull, risks once again livening up the next transfer period.
