Red Bull share Albon's 'best bits' as the Thai-British driver turns 24
Alex Albon enjoyed a remarkable debut season in Formula 1 in 2019 and turned turned 24 on Monday.
After finishing third in the F2 championship the year before, Albon was signed by Toro Rosso, with the Red Bull junior team turning to the London-born Thai, who at one stage had appeared set for a season in Formula E with Nissan e.dams.
Albon performed consistently enough for Toro Rosso over the first half of the season through to the summer break that when Red Bull opted to change the under-performing Pierre Gasly, he was given the nod.
Over the nine remaining races of last season, Albon scored strong points in eight, notably finishing fourth in Japan.
Albon should have finished on the podium for the first time in a chaotic Brazilian Grand Prix, but was taken out by Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton late on, leaving him to finish a dejected 14th.
To celebrate the birthday of their driver, Red Bull shared a montage of Albon's best moments since joining the team at the Belgium Grand Prix in 2019.
