Albon grid penalty shifts focus for Belgian GP

Albon grid penalty shifts focus for Belgian GP

Alexander Albon says the grid penalty he will receive for the Belgian Grand Prix this weekend will allow him to turn his focus towards pace, rather than striving for a result in his first race back with Red Bull.

During the summer break it was announced that Pierre Gasly would be being demoted to Toro Rosso, with Albon going in the other direction to Red Bull, after the Frenchman endured a torrid first half of the season.

The Thai-British driver’s first race comes at Spa, but not in ideal circumstances as he will receive a 10-place grid penalty for a new engine, putting him out of qualifying.

"Our plan is that only Albon and [Daniil] Kvyat will run it at Spa, for strategic reasons, looking at the rest of the season as a whole."

Instead, Max Verstappen and Gasly will receive theirs in Italy, while Kvyat and Albon will get theirs at Spa.

"We'll just go into the weekend more focused on race pace, which means more laps," he said at the drivers’ press conference on Thursday.
