Albon stays with Williams

Alex Albon has signed a multi-year deal to remain with Williams Racing according to the team. That rules out the possibility that Alex may have been a potential replacement for Sergio Perez at Red Bull for 2025.

It makes sense if Alex believes that the team are putting the right pieces in place to build a future of performance and one might suggest the money is enough to numb the idea of winning races and titles any time soon.

It’s a great move for Williams who have a very competitive driver in Alex and a very good car development driver at that.

Williams Press Release:

We can today announce that Alex Albon has committed his long-term future to Williams Racing. The Thai driver has signed a multi-year contract extension which takes the partnership into the new era of Formula 1 regulations and demonstrates a shared belief in the upward trajectory of the team.

Since joining Williams Racing, Alex Albon has showcased exceptional determination and dedication both on and off the track. His performance since he joined ahead of the 2022 FIA Formula 1 World Championship has been integral to the team’s progress and success, and his efforts significantly contributed to the team’s best championship finishing position since 2017 of seventh last year.

The extended relationship underscores Williams Racing’s commitment to building a competitive team capable of challenging for podiums and championships in Formula 1.

“I am incredibly happy to be remaining with Williams Racing and to continue working with such a talented and dedicated team of people,” Alex shared.

“It has been a difficult start to the year but since joining Williams we have made significant progress together and I have seen the huge changes happening behind the scenes to take us back to the front of the grid.
“This is a long-term project that I really believe in and want to play a key role in which is why I have signed a multi-year contract.
