Alexander Albon is a Thai-British F1 driver who currently competes for Williams Racing under the Thai flag.

Albon has had an impressive F1 career, previously racing for Scuderia Toro Rosso and Red Bull Racing. He became part of the Red Bull Junior Team in 2012, beginning his journey in open-wheel racing during the 2012 Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 season. Albon spent three years in the series, finishing third in the 2014 championship.

In 2015, he moved to the FIA Formula 3 European Championship, where he finished seventh. Albon’s skill caught the attention of ART Grand Prix, who signed him to compete in the 2016 GP3 Series, where he finished runner-up behind teammate Charles Leclerc.

In 2017, Albon moved to the FIA Formula 2 Championship with ART, finishing tenth in his maiden year. He switched to the DAMS team in 2018, winning four races and finishing third in the championship. Albon’s talent and performance earned him a spot in Formula One in 2019, where he debuted alongside Daniil Kvyat with Toro Rosso.

After twelve races, Albon was promoted to Red Bull Racing, where he partnered with Max Verstappen, replacing Pierre Gasly. A year later, Albon made history by taking his first podium finish and became the first Thai driver in a World Championship Formula One race to step onto a podium at the 2020 Tuscan Grand Prix. Despite his impressive performances, Albon was demoted to a test and reserve driver role with Red Bull for 2021, with Sergio Pérez taking his seat.

In 2022, Albon returned to Formula One, driving for Williams.
