Biography

What a difference a year makes. Alex Albon snatched an opportunity to join Toro Rosso a year ago and made the most of it - so much so that he graduated to Red Bull’s main team after only 12 Grand Prix starts with the junior team.

Albon’s 92 points represented a solid return for a season of upheaval, and the total would have been better had he not been punted out of second place in the final round in Brazil, by no less than Lewis Hamilton.

The impressive part for Albon was that, whether he was battling the midfield in the Toro Rosso or challenging the Ferraris in the Red Bull, at no time did the young Thai look like he was out of his depth.

On a grid loaded with talented 20-somethings, Albon just might prove to be the best of them.
