Albon on Verstappen battles: I got the better of him

Albon on Verstappen battles: I got the better of him

Alexander Albon recounted how he has previously go the better of Max Verstappen in the Red Bull team-mates' karting careers.

Albon has made a solid start alongside Verstappen after replacing the demoted Gasly mid-season, scoring top-six finishes in Belgium and Italy.

The Dutchman was not a stranger to Albon upon stepping up to Red Bull, with the pair having raced against each other prior to their single-seater careers.

It was something of a role reversal to their current situation, with Albon the shining star and Verstappen the inexperienced newcomer.

"You'd see this guy coming to the track with his dad," Albon told F1's 'Beyond the Grid' podcast.

"He'd be very quick, but he'd go home on Thursday because he wasn't allowed to race. In 2010 it was my second year in KF3, the karting series.

"I was the experienced one, the Red Bull-backed driver who had it all going for me in that sense, and Max was the young gun and we fought pretty much the whole year.

"We had some crashes, some fights, all good stuff though. He beat me to the WSK Championship, and then I won the World Championship, so you could say I got the better of him."
