Alex is going racing in Miami for the third time in his career, so let’s look back at how he has fared previously in the Sunshine State:
Throw back to 2022, and the inaugural Grand Prix in Florida, as Alex rolled out onto the Miami International Autodrome for the first time. Qualifying proved to be a difficult test with just two practice sessions to go on, and Albono managed a 1:31.266 to start P18 - one place ahead of Williams Racing teammate, Nicholas Latifi, for Sunday’s race.
24 hours later and it was time to go racing. Alex battled hard from the back of the grid for 57 laps, making up eight places to take the chequered flag in P10. Two 5-second penalties for Fernando Alonso meant our No.23 was promoted to P9, taking home two valuable points and the second points score of the season for the team.
A year on, and now racing alongside Floridian native Logan Sargeant, Albono was able to use his experience to improve on the previous season’s qualifying - narrowly missing out on Q3 to start P11 on race day.
As the lights went out on Sunday, Alex fought hard to maintain position against the pack around him. Although he maximised everything from his FW45, a lack of pace in the car and significant tyre degradation meant it was difficult for Albono to push up the grid. A rare event with no retirements, rain, safety cars or red flags ultimately resulted in a P14 finish for our No.23, despite a solid race.
After a week off following Round 5, we can’t wait to see Alex take to the track once again as we approach a quarter of the way through the 2024 season!
