Albon expecting more exciting racing in Austria

Alexander Albon says he is expecting much better racing in Austria after a dull French Grand Prix.

The Anglo-Thai driver fell down the order to record a 15th place finish in France, while teammate Daniil Kvyat recovered from the back of the grid to 14th in a low key race for Toro Rosso.

While the Paul Ricard circuit might not have seen the most interesting of races, Albon says he is expecting much more action in under a weeks time in Austria.

"It’s a technical track in the sense you really have to get everything right," he said.

"It’s complicated with a lot of elevation changes, which is not easy, but it does make for good racing.

"There’s plenty of overtaking opportunities, especially with the downhill sections where you can pass if you get your braking right. With three long straights, the slipstream effect is really big here.

"Because the rhythm of the track is long straight-tight corner, long straight-tight corner, what happens is that it produces good racing, because you are not stuck in dirty air and can follow the car in front much more closely, which means you can have a good fight, without having to hang back because of the dirty air."
