It’s time for Alex to head to the sunshine state for the first of three races Stateside, starting at the Miami International Autodrome this weekend.
This 19-turn track wraps around the Hard Rock Stadium for 5.41 kilometres, taking on three straights and three DRS zones.
It starts with a short main straight before turn 1, with a difficult exit, before heading into the S-section in turns 4, 5, and 6, leading into the first big straight for overtaking potential.
The next chance at gaining position sits just after a tight chicane between corners 16 and 17, where another longer straight lies before going into a hairpin turn for a DRS Zone finish.
This year, the track will also hold the second Sprint race of the 2024 Formula 1 season after Shanghai, making it the first and only back-to-back round for the short-form dash.
Racing at the 305 for a third time since its inception in 2022, Alex picked up his best finish of P9 in the Miami Grand Prix debut.
In what was a brilliant outing, our No23 raced from P18 all the way into the points and gained an extra position after a 10-second penalty was awarded to Fernando Alonso.
Last term, Albono fielded a stronger qualifying result for P11, but in what was a tricky outing with tyre management proving key, he dropped to a P14 finish.
We are looking forward to cheering our Thai racer around Miami for another Sprint weekend and can’t wait to see your support in Round 6 of the 2024 F1 season!
