Albon: We have some homework to do

Alexander Albon had a quieter qualifying at Silverstone than previous qualifying sessions. The Thai driver finally managed to reach Q3 again, despite losing some self-confidence in the beginning.

Loss of self-confidence

Albon could finally enjoy a quiet session, but admits he had to pick himself up after the first run. “I lost a bit of confidence in that first run. And then we just basically calmed down the car a bit for that second half of the run. And then actually for the rest of the laps, on the medium tyres, it was okay. We are looking pretty strong. I have some areas to tidy up my driving. We were looking in a pretty good place”, says Albon at an online press moment of Red Bull Racing.

“In Q3 we ran on an old set of mediums, the lap time was strong. We were one-tenth off a lap on softs with an older medium. There’s some homework to do on why that is. When we were on the soft tyre we just don’t have the grip”, ends the Thai driver.
