After being demoted to the reverse driver role, Alex Albon is set to drive in Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters, known as DTM, alongside another Red Bull prospect Liam Lawson. But most importantly, he remains part of the Red Bull family.
Alex Albon lost Formula 1 race seat in a week after the season has come to an end and was demoted to Red Bull/Alpha Tauri reserve driver duties for 2021. However, the Thai driver is unwilling to sit out the season on the bench and is set to race in DTM next year, but he’ll be racing only when eligible and schedule won’t clash with his reserve-driver duties.
“Alex is a valued member of the Team and we thought long and hard about this decision,” Horner said when announcing the Perez signing in December. “Having taken our time to evaluate all the relevant data and performances, we have decided that Sergio is the right driver to partner Max for 2021 and look forward to welcoming him to Red Bull Racing.
“Alex remains an important part of our team as test and reserve driver with a key focus on 2022 development, and we would like to thank him for his hard work and contribution.” stated the team principal.
