The Thai driver made his debut for the team at Spa following the summer break but took a 10-place grid penalty, starting from 17th.
The then 23-year-old showed incredible commitment and confidence to cut through the field, however, notably going around the outside of Daniel Ricciardo, while also putting two wheels on the grass on the final lap to take fifth place from Sergio Perez.
With Albon not having the smoothest of seasons this year - being lapped by team-mate Verstappen at the last race in Spain - he will look to draw inspiration from his drive in 2019 as he continues the wait for his maiden podium.
"Rush has gone" at Spa with high-downforce cars
Both one of the most thrilling as well as one of the most dangerous tracks on the calendar, Spa has long been a fan and drivers' favourite.
With modern-day F1 cars, however, the track has become less thrilling - in qualifying trim, at least.
Four tracks have hosted the six grands prix so far in 2020, but none of them put an emphasis on straight-line speed as much as Spa Francorchamps.
Ferrari took the chequered flag in both 2018 and 2019 courtesy of their superiority on the straights but are highly unlikely to do so again as the SF1000 has failed to live up to expectations this season.
The longest track on the F1 calendar, most of the lap around Spa is taken flat-out, leading to the average speed being one of the highest of all circuits.
With Ferrari's engine not being nearly as powerful as in the previous two years, the Belgian GP will lay bare the differences between the four engine suppliers. Although Mercedes has 'only' won three of the six Belgian Grands Prix in the turbo-hybrid era, the German works team will be the heavy favourite this weekend.
As for Ferrari, its losses in a straight line will become apparent. Where will Charles Leclerc, who took his maiden F1 victory at Spa in 2019, and Sebastian Vettel finish this time around?
