After and appendectomy and respiratory failure forced Alex Albon to miss the Italian Grand Prix, Williams Racing headed into this weekend’s race with some good news.
It seems that Alex is planning on making his return to the car in Singapore which will be quite a challenge as it is often one of the hottest races of the year.
“Firstly, I’d just like to thank everyone for all their messages and support over the Italian Grand Prix weekend,” said Albon.
“My preparation for Singapore has been a little different than normal but I’m feeling good and I’ve done everything possible to get ready for one of the most physical races on the calendar.
“I am not underestimating how big of a challenge this is going to be, but I am looking forward to hitting the track on Friday and getting back driving.
“It’s a great street circuit and the closest race to home for me in Thailand, so I’m really excited to be here and to see the fans that have turned out.”
Alex will have Nyck de Vries on standby should the return prove a hill to high to climb so close to recent surgery. Nyck did a terrific job sitting in for Albon at Monza so the team are in good hands either way.
