Albon to race on at Red Bull F1 team in 2020

British-born Thai racer Alexander Albon will continue to partner Max Verstappen at Red Bull in 2020, the Formula One team announced yesterday.

The 23-year-old made his debut with Red Bull-owned Toro Rosso this season but replaced under-performing French driver Pierre Gasly at the energy drink brand’s senior team from the Belgian Grand Prix in August. “Alex has performed extremely well since his debut with the team in Belgium and his results — seven finishes in the top-six — speak for themselves,” said team principal Christian Horner in a statement. Italy-based Toro Rosso confirmed separately that Gasly and Russian Daniil Kvyat, another former Red Bull driver, would continue as its lineup next season. Albon was tipped by Toro Rosso boss Franz Tost before the season started as the year’s likely surprise package and he has cemented his reputation with strong performances alongside Verstappen, winner of two races in 2019. The Thai has finished all his seven races for Red Bull in the top six, scoring 68 points in addition to the 16 he took with Toro Rosso earlier. He is now sixth in the overall standings.
