Albon looks ‘excited’ ahead to return: “Not easy on the sidelines”


Alexander Albon will return to the Formula 1 scene in 2022 after a year behind the scenes. The British Thai admits that it has not always been easy to watch from the sidelines.

After a year of absence, Albon is returning to Formula 1. The former Red Bull driver was sidelined by the team in favor of Sergio Perez because the performance was not always satisfactory. Despite this, Albon remained closely involved with the team and over the past year acted as both a mentor to Yuki Tsunoda and the man who did the necessary simulator work for Max Verstappen and Perez.

Under the wing of Albon, Tsunoda finally managed to throw off his trepidation in the second half of the season. After a shaky first part of the season, after the summer break, they managed to perform more and more consistently and that even resulted in a good fourth place in the last race of the season, the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. “That was a good race for him,” Albon said at the time.

Contribution to Verstappen title

He will finally be back in 2022 and will drive for the Williams team as the replacement for George Russell. “I’m very excited. It wasn’t easy to watch from the sidelines,” he told “At the same time, it was fantastic to be part of Max’s success story. I certainly feel that I also made a small contribution to his title,” concludes the Thai Briton.
