Horner on Albon's future: 'Are looking at options in Formula 1'

Today it was officially announced that Sergio Perez will be Max Verstappen's teammate at Red Bull next year as well. The Mexican is now certain of his seat. Pierre Gasly also knows where he stands. This does not apply to Alexander Albon however.

Speaking to Autosport.com team boss Christian Horner that Albon will still play a big role in the Red Bull team, even after this news.

"Alex still remains an important part of the team. He has played an important role this year and he will continue to play that role."

Albon in different seat next year?

That, of course, is the question. There will certainly be some seats in the midfield that will become vacant, and Albon is a contender for that. Horner is willing to think with him if that situation arises.

"We are looking at whether there are options in Formula 1 for him for next year. But in the event that he's not in a race seat, he'll fill the same role he did for us this year."

So for Albon, his future for next year seems to be between a seat in the middle or rear of F1 or another year in his current role at Red Bull.
