Toro Rosso rookie Alexander Albon has jokingly complained about all the manuals he had to learn to drive a Formula 1 car for the first time, as the 22-year-old will make his full debut in F1 next week in Melbourne.
Albon impressed a lot of people during pre-season testing in Barcelona, as he put in an incredible amount of laps for Toro Rosso in the days he was on track.
Speaking to Motorsport-Total, Albon explained that being an F1 driver is still a bit surreal to him.
"I will believe it once I'm in Melbourne," he told the German news source.
"It won't be the easiest track on the F1 calendar and the circuit will open my eyes. I'm really looking forward to it."
Integrating into Toro Rosso is what Albon has been occupied with for the last period of time, as the rookie joked about one aspect of it all being the most difficult - the steering wheel manual.
"That was quite a big chapter in the manual. I had to go through so many manuals.
"It was nice I had the time to do this and it really helps to build the tension. It's good to understand the technology in the back of the car as a driver."
