ALBON: “I DON’T FEEL ANY EXTRA PRESSURE TO PERFORM BY GASLY’S WIN”.
Alexander Albon says Pierre Gasly’s victory over Monza last week does not affect the pressure he feels to perform. Max Verstappen’s team mate has already had some disappointing weekends.
Alexander Albon – Pierre Gasly – Albon said durring the press conference on Thursday that he thinks the progress he is making is not reflected in the results. “The process remains the same, as has always been the case in Formula 1. When I look at my own recent races and everything that has happened I am happy with how things are going. I think Monza does not reflect well how I am doing within the team. When I get the chance, I will show what I can do.”
When asked whether it wouldn’t be frustrating for him not to be on the surprising stage last weekend, the young Thai reacted resignedly. “You always want to be on the stage, that’s for sure. Especially if you get a chance like that, when the Mercedes Mercedes is not there to win the race. That is disappointing yes.
“But there were so many teams who were affected by the situation last weekend. We were certainly not the only ones.
Monza was a very positive weekend
Neither Mercedes nor Red Bull Racing were involved in Italy. At Monza three other teams had to endure the podium. For Alexander Albon it also seemed like a weekend to forget, but the Thai still gets a lot of positive results out of it.
In the run-up to the second Italian weekend in F1 in a row, Albon is asked about his progress in the sport. In Belgium, the Red Bull driver showed an improved form, but in the press conference prior to the next race he is forced to face the facts.
“Isn’t Monza a weekend to forget?”, he is asked. Albon doesn’t think so: “I think Monza was a very positive weekend if you don’t count Sunday. It is getting better and better as far as pace is concerned”.
Contrary to what it looked like, Albon did improve on Monza in his own words: “I felt a lot more comfortable. It’s a feeling I had in Monza that came on top of the improvement I noticed in Spa”.
“I try to focus on what is positive and I try to take my concentration with me to the weekend ahead”.
