Alex Albon faces the cruel ploy of fate. The Thai racer had been in his second season with Red Bull. While joining in the summer of 19′ he had hoped that he would have had more time. However, with the fast-paced turns of F1, time is the most scarce element in the sport.
The Thai national had his issues with the car at the beginning of 2020. He kept falling back the track regularly and Red Bull kept losing points. Although he improved at the dying stages of the season, Red Bull couldn’t risk that next year. Although the decision to replace him was hard, they had to do it.
F1 embarks on a new journey from 2021. With revised FIA rules and new car designs, F1 plans to turn over a new leaf. However, this chapter will not have the provision to make too many mistakes. With pilots grilling each other at each turn, the stakes will be high.
However, team principal Horner got impressed by the form he portrayed towards the end of the season. His podiums at Mugello and Sakhir and his powerful finish at Abu Dhabi all sums up the reason he is still a test driver in the team.
“Max’s 2021 teammate has been a matter for debate and at times something that has yielded intense questioning and external pressure for Alex. He handled this extremely well and it impressed me how much strength, resilience and class he has displayed throughout,” pointed out Horner.
