Horner: Albon’s career tenacity earned F1 2020 shot with Red Bull

Red Bull Formula 1 boss Christian Horner believes Alex Albon’s career turnaround demonstrates his “great tenacity”, and says his driver has earned a 2020 chance with the team on merit.
F1 rookie Albon will line up alongside Max Verstappen for a full season next year after being moved from Toro Rosso to Red Bull’s senior team halfway through 2019 in place of the struggling Pierre Gasly.
Albon’s confirmation at Red Bull for 2020 completed a remarkable 12 months that started with the London-born Thai being extricated from a Formula E race contract and included being thrust into F1 without driving a grand prix car before pre-season testing.
