Helmut Marko hopes that the criticism regarding Alexander Albon, after achieving his first podium finish in Mugello, will finally be over. The Red Bull Racing advisor emphasizes that Red Bull Racing has been in talks with other drivers, but has finally decided to concentrate on Albon.
"We know that Albon is fast under normal circumstances", says the Austrian in conversation with Movistar. "I hope it is finally crystal clear that Albon is our second driver, as long as he continues to improve himself and meet our expectations."
