He is a plastic Thai, born & schooled in UK Thai mother English father who was a racing driver therefore his start in driving came from UK I'll let you decide......

What does it matter and whats with the labels? He's a very promising driver who's just been given a proper chance at success in F1.

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

Like it or not, the fact is that the self-appointed farang driving "experts" that post here so often and so virulently are probably not the best drivers in the world either.  I wonder how many of them had to have more than one go at their home driving tests?

Is he Thai-British or British-Thai? I'm confused.

The Red Bull brand already has a famous driver….why not give the original homeboy from Bangkok another shot at the big time?

Thought he drove for Ferrari  😁  That is until he lost his cool when an RTP officer on his motorcycle brake tested him

Good luck to Albon,

Gasly was just not cutting it, David Couktard said few weeks back they should do this and Gasly could then get back in the fold at Torro Rosso and develop in F1 to have another crack in time

Well when you are a member of the Thai Red Bull family with their extreme wealth everybody else is regarding as a "nothing" of importance. Therefore you would see nothing on the bonnet.

True, unfortunately.

The above connection is likely why Albon got a shot at it. Not going to look too good when Verstappen wipes the floor with him.

 

I would like to see Alonso join Red Bull next year, then we'd see some action up front.

Well I did mention in another thread it would be unfortunate for Albon if the media raked up his family history.  However from what you have said then I guess his Mother with her record would have some "pull" in the Thai criminal fraternity such as this Red bull scoundrel.  However I still think it unfair on AA as he got where he ( perhaps until this Red Bull seat ) was based on his own accomplishments with the support of his British father of course. Sure Verstappen will wipe the floor with him for the remainder of the season, same as he has done to Gasly for the first half.

I read the Guardian. They say he is Anglo-Thai. 😎

 

Time will tell about his F1 talent.

You obviously do not follow F1 as you would know that Albon is one of the top young talents currently driving in the series. I would proffer he has got his chance with Red Bull Aston Martin Racing purely on his skill sets, at this level of racing you need more than the type of connection you talk of. His father was also a racing driver hence it follows that he has been nurtured from being very young to where he is now. 

 

Your last sentence just confirms your lack of understanding of the sport... Do you really think Alonso can compete with these lads today in the same machinery...

One would think an expert like you would check your brain was in gear before engaging your mouth.

 

Austrian entrepreneur Dietrich Mateschitz and Thai businessman Chaleo Yoovidhya founded Red Bull (the drinks co') in 1984. Albon got a shot at it as he is half Thai and has Thai nationality.

 

You are going to look as stupid as Albon will when Verstappen wipes the floor with him. Verstappen has true talent, not the backing of a drinks company.

 

As for your comment on Alonso.... he's a world champion... 'nuff said.
