Alex Albon learning the ins and outs of the Red Bull 2019 F1 car

Red Bull Racing driver Alexander Albon is still trying to learn the "tricks and quirks" of the RB15 after impressing on his debut for the team at the Belgian Grand Prix.

Albon finished P5 after starting in P17 due to a grid penalty on his senior Red Bull debut at Spa after being promoted to the side following an impressive half of the season with Toro Rosso.

"I still need time and I know I'm still improving - I'm kind of in the deep end but I do feel I will get better," Albon said to Autosport"So that's kind of my attitude towards (last) weekend and yeah, even from Friday, I understood the car a lot better.

"It's just really (about) chipping away at it and I am quite happy with how it's gone. There's still definitely things I'm not comfortable with. It's not that it's not comfortable, it's just that it's very different.

"It's just (about) rewiring - break the style of the Toro Rosso car and understand the tricks and quirks of the Red Bull car. And that takes a bit of time because initially everyone knows how to drive a car to a good level and then it's just (about) getting them extra tenths out - (to) understand the car, not just driving-wise, but also set-up-wise."
