He really impressed in the last two races in particular, qualifying fourth and finishing eighth at the Dutch Grand Prix, before qualifying sixth and finishing seventh at the Italian GP, in a car that shouldn't realistically be fast enough to challenge the likes of Mercedes, McLaren and Aston Martin.
These performances have boosted the team into seventh in the constructors' championship, with Haas, Alfa Romeo and AlphaTauri all behind the British team. However, Vowles knows how hard it will be to stay ahead of them for the rest of the season.
"Whilst we are seventh in the constructors' championship, the gaps are this close, within a weekend you could go back to eighth or ninth," he told Viaplay at Monza.
"I think from my perspective, it's incredibly important that we score now, we know the AlphaTauri, we know the Alfa Romeo, we know the Haas have upgrades coming throughout the year, we don't anymore."
Focus on 2024 for Williams?
These comments suggest that the team may now be focusing on 2024, as they look to take yet another step closer to the teams that are currently ahead of them in performance.
A huge boost for them is that Albon will definitely be there in 2024, to hopefully take his brilliant form into a better car.
There are question marks about the other driver seat, however. Logan Sargeant has struggled in his rookie season, and is yet to rack up his first point in F1.
When you see what his esteemed team-mate is doing, it does increase the pressure on young Sargeant, and the team have not yet decided whether he will be the second Williams driver next season or not.
They can ill afford the mistakes he has made in 2023, particularly if they have a faster car next year that is able to challenge the top five.
As for Albon, he is getting closer and closer to a first podium with the Williams team, and with their impressive straight-line speed that was on show at Monza, he may be hoping that it is just round the corner for him with more fast circuits such as the Las Vegas GP and the Brazilian GP coming up before the season is out.
