Horner: One of the reasons why Albon is a Red Bull driver

Alexander Albon achieved his first podium of his F1 career at the Grand Prix of Tuscany at the Mugello circuit. A difficult period, in which he had to endure a lot of criticism, seems to end with a positive note. In any case, Christian Horner is confident that things will only get better from now on.

The team boss of Red Bull Racing praises Albon's qualities in his column for RedBull.com. The Thai may be a polite, nice boy to the outside world, but he is mentally very strong according to Horner. In addition, he has shown that he can also steer quite a bit.

Albon deserves his seat in F1

He is also a gritty racer and knows how to get his elbows out, which is one of the reasons he is a Red Bull driver. He has that never give up mentality and he keeps coming back even when the chips are down which we expect from our drivers, Horner said.

The fight against Ricciardo is proof of that, he says. "That pass was for a podium AND a tattoo for Cyril!. I really hope this opens the doors for him confidence wise and that he walks tall as he deserves his seat and his place in F1."
