Albon: I don't think it would have opened any doors

Red Bull waited until the final minute last season before making a decision about Alexander Albon's future. Because of that uncertainty, Albon has not had the chance to look for another team before. According to the driver himself, that wouldn't have mattered either.

“I don’t think it would’ve changed too much," he said in a press conference from Red Bull, which was attended by GPblog. "The news was late because the choice was late as well. It was to see how the year would progress. And truthfully, things were going better. My best race of the year was in Abu Dhabi, but it was a little bit too late. It shows that I felt like I am improving. But to answer your question, I don’t think it would’ve opened up any more doors.”

Albon remains loyal to Red Bull

Albon then remains cryptic in his answer. “I’m a Red Bull driver. From my side, I wouldn’t know how to answer the question. I have a contract with Red Bull, so yeah...”

He then says that he has no negative feelings about the fact that Red Bull did not put him back at AlphaTauri and gave that opportunity to Gasly. "Yuki [Tsunoda] also had a strong season last year," said the Thai F1 driver.
