Alexander Albon has set himself the goal of returning to Formula 1 at Red Bull.
The Thai teammate at the highest level of Max Verstappen last season has to settle for the reserve role for the time being. The Mexican Sergio Perez has taken his position.
“I have overcome setbacks before,” said Albon (24). “It’s not the first time I’ve been thrown out. I will probably get over that. With everything I have in me, I will compete to get my “seat” back. That is my ambition. I will not give up.”
With Perez (31), Red Bull hopes to have more experience in-house and to have a driver who, just like Verstappen, can compete with the often-winning Mercedes team.
