F1 Albon: I was on brink of quitting racing after Red Bull drop in 2012

Alexander Albon admits he was on the verge of quitting racing altogether after being dropped by the Red Bull junior programme in 2012.
Albon, who was part of Red Bull’s junior programme in 2012 only to be dropped after one year, says he wanted to stop racing after a frustrating year but rallied back to climb the junior categories ladder.
24 hours after ending his F2 season, Albon was provisionally still heading to Formula E having signed for Nissan e.dams but an 11th-hour deal was struck to release the 22-year-old from his contract to join Toro Rosso in F1.
