The Verstappen 'hustle' that Albon is chasing

By:

Having Max Verstappen as a teammate and a Red Bull that's a handful means Alex Albon faces a tough task trying to impress in the hottest of Formula 1 hot seats. Despite external perceptions, he remains inspired by the challenges ahead

o Formula 1 driver ever has an easy time if they want to do well, even when they get their hands on the best car. But there are occasions in every driver's career when the challenges can come thick and fast.

Alex Albon has been hit with a double whammy this season that few drivers would be especially envious of. First, he's going up against a teammate in Max Verstappen who is in the best form of his career and leaving no stone unturned in his quest to take the fight to Mercedes. On top of that, Albon has been handed a very tricky Red Bull RB16, which has been hampered by aerodynamic imbalances that have left both its drivers struggling at times.
