Horner impressed by "phenomenal" Albon's overtaking manoeuvres

Horner impressed by "phenomenal" Albon's overtaking manoeuvres

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has claimed that Alex Albon has been "phenomenal" after finishing fifth at the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix.

Albon produced a scintillating overtaking display to fight his way to a top five finish at Silverstone, making numerous breathtaking passes around the ultra-fast Copse corner.

Horener commented: "Alex has actually raced phenomenally well this season.

"I think that it will give him added confidence, we just need to make sure he is starting further up the grid. Imagine if, with that pace, he started in P4 or five?"

Albon has himself acknowledged that his qualifying pace is not where it needs to be.

However, even with his ninth place starting position, Horner feels a better result could have been possible if the team had called the strategy slightly better.

He added: "With 20-20 hindsight, maybe we should have run longer.

"He ran into traffic quite quickly and lost quite a bit of time behind Gasly before passing him.

"Some of the manoeuvres that he pulled, around the outside at Copse on Raikkonen, same with Stroll I think. Some amazing and very brave passing manoeuvres because we weren't very quick at the end of the Hangar Straight, it was sectors one and two that he had to get the job done.

"I think he drove a really exciting and competitive race today."
