Alex Albon in F1
Alex Albon's F1 career seemed to be a lost dream when signing for Nissan e-dams in Formula E for the 2018-19 season.
Before the season even started, however, Red Bull came calling to renew ties that had been cut seven years prior. Albon was signed to drive for Toro Rosso with Daniil Kvyat for 2019.
A solid start to his F1 career, along with Pierre Gasly's struggles, saw Albon promoted to Red Bull after the Hungarian Grand Prix.
In his first race with the top team, Albon started 17th through engine penalties but fought through to fifth
He looked on course to secure a first podium in Brazil before being hit by Lewis Hamilton in the closing stages.
In 2020, a similar fate would befall Albon at the season opener with Hamilton colliding with the Thai-British driver in the closing stages, taking away a chance of a maiden F1 win.
Podiums would eventually come at Mugello and Bahrain, but incidents and a lack of pace would see Albon demoted at the end of the year.
Albon took up a reserve role at Red Bull for 2021 alongside a campaign in DTM.
After his stint in Germany ended, Albon coached AlphaTauri rookie Yuki Tsunoda.
For 2022, Albon races for Williams but remains linked to Red Bull. He will continue to drive for Williams in 2023 and beyond after the team announced a multi-year agreement in August 2022.
