Albon is getting used to life in Formula 1 after daunting start

Alex Albon claims he has adapted to life as a Formula 1 driver after initially feeling daunted by the prospect. The Toro Rosso driver has performed well during his first seven races, sitting ahead of Romain Grosjean and Lance Stroll in the table.

Without doubt, those seven points have helped relax Albon, but he suggests just the number of races completed mean he's feeling more comfortable.

“The F1 circus isn’t so crazy once you’ve spent time in it. You just adjust to it and everything becomes normal. I’m getting there. At the beginning, it was a bit daunting in some respects how much stuff you had to do. Now it’s more like, you get used to it," Albon told Racefans.

“Early points was always good for me. I’m happy with the team as well. I feel very comfortable with them, I don’t feel stressed out or anything like that. I’ve got a lot of support from these guys and the feeling is good."

Albon finished in P11 twice in a row before recording a P8 around the streets of Monte Carlo. Albon has been one of the most consistent drivers in the early rounds of 2019.
