Since joining the Red Bull team after summer break, Alexander Albon has won more points than his team-mate Max Verstappen.
Before the race in Mexico, Verstappen was already 17 points behind its team-mate. After Verstappn's new unsuccessful race at the Rodriguez Brothers, Albon increased his leadership. The result is now 58 – 39 in favor of the Thai-British racer.
After yesterday's race, Red Bull Chief Christian Horner said: “Alex scored more points than Max over the summer break, which you would never expect.”
In six races, Albon scored just five points less than Pierre Gasly in his 12 starts for Red Bull. Albon won the race for the eighth consecutive time, ranking fifth in Mexico with the fifth place finish of his career.
