Albon not satisfied: It was a difficult and frustrating race

Alexander Albon had to fight for the last point on Sunday. The Red Bull Racing driver started in fifteenth position and was in continuous combat during the Russian Grand Prix. Especially the first stint Albon had a hard time on the hard tyre.

Frustrating race

"Today was a lot of work for one point and it wasn't an easy race," Albon opens with a Red Bull press release. The Thai driver had to start from fifteenth position after receiving a penalty of five places for changing his gearbox.

"We struggled at the beginning to overtake and get through the pack on the hard tyre and so we lost a lot of time. When we swapped to the mediums it was a little better and we did as much as we could but it was difficult out there and a frustrating race," Albon continued, eventually finishing in tenth place.

Damage limitation

Albon says he was in trouble with other drivers throughout the race and was therefore not able to drive really good laps. "After the gearbox penalty, today was about damage limitation and now I'm already focusing on Germany and having a cleaner weekend in two weeks' time," he adds.
