Red Bull confirms Albon to partner Verstappen
Red Bull-Honda has confirmed that they have signed Alex Albon to remain with the team for the 2020 season to drive alongside Max Verstappen.
Team Principal Christian Horner said, "Alex has performed extremely well since his debut with the Team in Belgium and his results - seven finishes in the top-six - speak for themselves. It's extremely hard to deny that level of consistency and in tandem with a growing reputation as a tenacious, fiercely committed racer, Alex has proved that he fully deserves to continue his progress with Aston Martin Red Bull Racing. There is plenty of potential still to unlock and we look forward to seeing Alex alongside Max in 2020."
Alex Albon said, "I am really excited to be partnering Max again for next year and I know how fortunate I am to be given this opportunity. I'm hugely thankful that Red Bull have put their trust in me and believed in my results since I joined the Team and for them to keep me in the car next year is a big deal. This year has been an incredible year for me and getting the call up to Red Bull mid-season was already a big step, so now I will use the learnings from this season and use the experience to improve and fight at the front in 2020."
