Albon not happy after the race: I have to be careful what I say now...

In the final phase of the race it looked good for Alexander Albon. The young driver saw the podium in front of him but was eventually tapped out of the race by Lewis Hamilton. The Red Bull Racing driver feels a bit robbed.

"I'm a little stressed right now, so I have to be careful what I say. It is what it is. I can really feel like we could win this race. Mercedes had the speed today, but the team did a great strategy. When we made the last pit stop I didn't really know where we were, but when I saw how we were doing it it looked really good," Albon explained about his position on the track to Sky Sports F1.

Overtaking Hamilton

"I wanted to catch up in the first five corners after the Safety Car. I was confident and the car felt good in that part of the race. It's a tricky situation because I felt like I had already made the action. I was already focusing on Bottas for me. Brazil was 50/50, but here I didn't have that feeling. You always have a risk with overtaking outside, but I gave as much space as possible. I was already on the edge," the young driver explained about his overtaking action on Lewis Hamilton, who was also knocked out of the race by the world champion at the Brazilian Grand Prix in 2019.
