Alex is back in Montreal for the fourth time in his Formula 1 career.
There have been plenty of memorable moments from our No.23 around the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, so kick up your feet and read on as we take a look back…
Albono’s debut in Quebec came in 2019, and he made a strong start, squeezing into Q2 after posting a time of 1:12.020, which was enough for P14.
However, it was a difficult race day for Alex, who went into the pits on Lap 1 for a new front wing after he was caught between Sergio Perez and Antonio Giovinazzi.
He continued to battle in the race, though was eventually forced to retire the car with 11 laps to go.
The Canadian GP returned in 2022, and in an extremely wet quali session, Alex fought his way to P12 after he set a 1:26.858, improving on his previous showing.
Unfortunately, it was another tough Sunday in Montreal. Our Thai racer couldn’t quite convert an impressive Saturday into points and crossed the finish line P13.
In 2023, Alex’s luck shifted. During another wet qualification session, he made the early move to switch to slicks after advancing from Q1 as the track began to dry.
The decision paid off, as Albono set the fastest time of the day, 1:18.725, to book his spot in the third session and secure P10 for race day.
On Sunday, he made a clean start and executed the perfect one-stop strategy, fending off the overtaking efforts of George Russell and Esteban Ocon to seal P7.
His resilient defensive effort saw him voted as F1’s Driver of the Day.
Hopefully, Albono can continue his positive trajectory and eclipse his performances of past this weekend in Montreal!
