Alexander Albon had to leave qualifying for the British Grand Prix already after Q2. The British-Thai driver did not manage to get any further than the twelfth starting position and was therefore not allowed to move on to the final session.
A huge disappointment for the Red Bull team. During the second free practice session, it was Albon who had a hard crash and during qualifying, the Red Bull driver didn't manage to raise any eyebrows either.
New racing engineer faces busy days
Helmut Marko indicated earlier this weekend that he expects Albon to perform better now that there is a new racing engineer for the young driver, Simon Rennie. The engineer will have noticed a lot in the past few days and there is still a lot of work to be done.
