Albon Reflects Williams Paid Our Price' for Pit Stops, Narrowly Misses Points in Australia

 Alex Albon was left “disappointed” following a frustrating race at the Australian Grand Prix, with the Thai driver narrowly missing out on points in P11 amid a challenging weekend for Williams.

As the team’s sole runner in the race following the decision to put Albon in team mate Logan Sargeant’s car – after his own chassis was damaged beyond repair in a crash during Friday’s FP1 – the squad were hopeful that the 28-year-old would offer their best chance to potentially score points.

EXPLAINED: Why Williams had to bench Sargeant in Australia – and the big impact it has on the rest of their 2024

At times it looked like this might be possible during the Grand Prix, with Albon at one point running in the top 10 after starting from P12 on the grid. However, making early pit stops due to struggles with his tyres caused him to lose out later on to cars including the Haas duo of Nico Hulkenberg and Kevin Magnussen.

Asked for his feelings after the race, Albon responded: “A bit disappointed. I don’t think we had the pace today, and we were kind of falling away from the group we were racing, so we kept pitting early to keep us in the mix, get on some fresh tyres and try and close the gap again.
