Albon leaving options open beyond contract
Alex Albon is leaving his options open for the future beyond his current contract.
Williams is obviously happy with the on-form British-born Thai driver, with boss James Vowles declaring in Singapore:
Alex is here for a long time, I can already tell you that.
But as his standout performances are turning heads in the paddock, 27-year-old Albon is not yet committing beyond the terms of his contract.
He inked a new multi-year contract with Williams last year, reportedly including a fixed term for 2023 and 2024.
To be honest, I want to be part of the rise of Williams because I think our development and what's going on behind the scenes is pretty great, he is quoted by formula.hu.
As long as my contract lasts, I am fully committed to the team.
However, Albon indicated that it only makes sense to keep his options option for the future.
"I am already 27 years old - not old, but not young either. I feel like I'm already over a good part of my career. Next year I'll be 28, then 29, which is almost 30.
I want to give myself the chance to fight for victories and podiums. And the question is, can we get this team to that level?
