- The Thai-British driver reveals that the atmosphere at Williams was one of significant factors to join the team.
- Albon is happy that the deal has come together despite some issues.
What he had to say:
- “Firstly, I would say that they’re both great teams. Looking at Williams, I would say that the first thing is, they look like they’re on the up.”
- “They’ve obviously got the investment coming in, but also I had the chance to visit the team and they all seemed very positive, optimistic. They were very keen to talk to me and get involved and to make things happen. It seemed like a great choice to get back onto the grid.”
- “I don’t want to go into detail about that [the deal] too much, to be honest. I think obviously, it’s inevitable that things are gonna happen. But, just great that you know everything worked out.”
