13 August, 2019, 10:57
Despite looking promising, Albon's rookie year hasn't exactly been stellar, as he's so far been out-performed by his current teammate Daniil Kvyat at Toro Rosso.
Albon has got himself noticed this season with strong performances.

As fate would have it, Kvyat has more points up its belt so far in 2019 but Red Bull Racing chose to promote the less experienced driver.
