Williams is hoping to recover for the Australian Grand Prix after having a messy weekend in Saudi Arabia.
Alexander Albon reflected on the team’s performance in the last Grand Prix and said he hopes they will be in a better position for the upcoming race in Australia.
The Saudi Arabian race was a nightmare for the British team, as both cars retired from the race, with Nicholas Latifi crashing himself out, while Albon made contact with Lance Stroll through the final stages.
“I know the whole team will be hoping to bounce back after a tricky event in Jeddah,” Albon told the press, including ASN Motorsports. “So we’ll be pushing hard to maximize performance and do the best we can.”
The Williams driver admitted being excited about the upcoming weekend, expecting to see how his FW44 handles on the Australian track.
“There are a lot of changes to the circuit this year, so I’m excited to see how we get on and how the FW44 handles the track.”
Albon’s teammate Latifi said the changes to the circuit look “promising,” stating he hopes racing will improve and that his team will be able to have a better performance than the last race.
“The new track changes look promising; I really hope it’ll improve the racing so we’re able to put on an exciting Grand Prix for the fans after they’ve waited for so long.”
It will be the first time the Canadian driver will race around the Albert Park circuit in his Formula 1 career and seems enthusiastic about gaining experience with the track.
“I’m really excited to get my first taste of racing at Albert Park,” he said. “I’ve not yet driven there with Formula One, although I did get to explore the venue in 2020 and I thought Melbourne was an incredible place. The circuit itself looks really fun.”
