Following their successful race at the Hockenheimring, Toro Rosso sit fifth in the Constructors' Championship and Albon reflected on their best showing this season.

"After such a great result for the team last week in Germany, I can’t wait to hit the track again this weekend. It was great to finish sixth which was the best result of my career, even if I thought there was more on the table!" Albon said.

With the Hungarian Grand Prix the conclusion for the season's second double-header, Albon also reflected on some of his highlights from the venue as well as hinting a possible plan for the weekend.

"I’ve had mixed fortunes here in the past, the highlights being winning the GP3 sprint race in 2016 and the F2 sprint last year.
