Alexander Albon thinks that his result at the Miami GP is “less surprising” than the one at the Australian GP.
Albon had his second points finish of the 2022 season in Miami. He crossed the finish line in 10th position after starting 18th. Later on, he was promoted to P9 after Fernando Alonso’s time penalty. The Williams driver was delighted with the result.
“I’m super happy. If you look at the whole weekend, I would actually say this is obviously much less surprising than Melbourne,” he said.
“We were in the top 10 for two free practice sessions, and so generally there. It wasn’t low fuel or anything like that, we were there on pure pace. So to get the P10 is, I feel, where we should have been all weekend.
“Of course, we lucked into a little bit of collisions with the cars in front, but we were right there behind them, catching them as well. So I’m really happy. It was a really strong weekend.
“The anomaly is qualifying. And we kind of need to understand where to get the performance back, because I think we got it in Bahrain, and we just just lost our footing a little bit.”
