During his tenure with the world championship-winning outfit, the 27-year-old was unable to rival his former team-mate Max Verstappen from 2019 to 2020, eventually resulting in his dismissal by Christian Horner and leaving him without a race seat. Albon then found himself demoted to the role of test and reserve driver for the 2021 season.
"I kind of did something I think everyone would do in the same way as me," Albon told the High Performance podcast.
"I basically got statistics and research on Pierre Gasly, who I replaced myself in the team and then Sergio [Perez] at the time, who is currently in the seat.
"It was very simple statistics, but most of it was relative to Max so speed, qualifying, race, on an Excel sheet."
Albon has proven to be a standout performer since joining Williams, outperforming his former team-mate Nicholas Latifi in the previous year and asserting dominance over Latifi's replacement, Logan Sargeant, in 2023.
