Bri­tish-born Thai racer Alexan­der Al­bon will con­tinue to part­ner Max Ver­stap­pen at Red Bull next year. Al­bon has scored 68 points for Red Bull over his seven races, just four be­hind Ver­stap­pen, in­clud­ing a ca­reer-high fin­ish of fourth at the Ja­panese Grand Prix. “Alex has per­formed ex­tremely well since his de­but with the team in Bel­gium and his re­sults – seven fin­ishes in the top­six – speak for them­selves,” said team boss Chris­tian Horner. oro Rosso con­firmed sep­a­rately that Gasly and Rus­sian Daniil Kvyat, another for­mer Red Bull driver, would con­tinue as their lineup next sea­son. Only strug­gling for­mer cham­pi­ons Wil­liams with a seat to be filled, although that is ex­pected to go to 24-yearold Cana­dian driver and team re­serve Ni­cholas Lat­ifi.
