Alexander Albon has presented his new helmet for the 2022 Formula 1 season, and there is a remarkable logo that stands out. This is because Red Bull is still on the Williams driver's helmet.

Albon has not walked a straight path to the top. The young Thai was accepted into the Red Bull junior program, then thrown out of it, taken to Toro Rosso right before the start of the season, moved on to Red Bull Racing after six months and shown the door again after a year and a half.

Ups and Downs at Red Bull

Thai has experienced many highs but also lows through Red Bull. The team offered him the chance in step-up classes, offered him the chance in Formula 1 and kept him on board in 2021 to play a role in Verstappen's title fight. The team also worked hard for him by arranging a spot at Williams.

Although it was said that ties with Red Bull have been severed by this switch, Albon's helmet shows otherwise. He may no longer be part of the Red Bull program, but it is noteworthy that a Williams driver will be driving in F1 in 2022 with a Red Bull logo on his helmet.
