The Formula 1 website released the surprising news this afternoon (August 12th) that the Thai-British driver, Alexander Albon, will replace Pierre Gasly’s in the Red Bull team for the mid 2019 season. He will drive for Red Bull in the 13th competition in Belgium on August 30th and 31st and September 1st, 2019. The 2019 F1 competitions are being held in 21 different countries.

 

“It’s the bombshell of the summer. Red Bull have taken the shock decision to drop Pierre Gasly and replace him with their Toro Rosso driver Alex Albon” says the F1 website’s breaking news section.

 

According to F1, Albon, in his first season of F1 after finishing runner-up in last year’s FIA Formula 2 championship, has impressed all in the paddock with his speed and maturity. The British-born Thai driver has scored 16 points from his 12 Grand Prix races to date, with a best position of sixth in the rain-affected German round, his first ever F1 race in the wet.

Cant be Thai as he can drive OK

 

Why say that? Every driver here is trying to do the same as him.

They all think they are formula 1 drivers, trying to get to the chequered flag first.

Excellent news for Albon, and us as spectators. Gasly just wasn't getting the results needed which has surprised me as I rate him as a driver. Hopefully Albon will hit the ground running and Verstappen will have a team mate challenging him again. I miss the Ricciardo- Verstappen type battles.

You might be right, but I wish they could accelerate Formula One style when the traffic lights turn to green!

When it comes down to it I would be surprised if any driver Red Bull puts beside Verstappen will come close to him. It’s not that they are bad drivers it’s because Verstappen is getting performance out of the car that is beyond the ability of any other driver in the field except for Hamilton. Similarly with Hamilton, Botas gets the most out of the car in qualifying but in a race Hamilton is in a league of his own.

Don't blame them for being cautious - so many carry on across when their lights turn red!

 

Apart from those waiting who: fell asleep; busy texting or watching videos on their phone; picking their nose!

Like it or not, the fact is most Thais wouldn't pass a driving test in most Western countries without considerable learning and effort.
