Alexander Albon: Toro Rosso deal for 2019 for British-born Thai driver.

Red Bull junior team Toro Rosso have signed Alexander Albon to compete their line-up for 2019.

Albon, 22, was born in London but races under a Thai flag. He joins rookies Lando Norris at McLaren and George Russell at Williams and five-time champion Lewis Hamilton.

Albon has been given a second chance by Red Bull after being dropped from their driver programme in 2012.
He replaces New Zealander Brendon Hartley at Toro Rosso

Alexander Albon is the second Thai driver to have raced in F1. Prince Bira raced from 1950-54. In the 2nd WW he was Chief Instructor at RAF St Merryn training glider pilots. Quite a Guy !

In addition to Britain’s 4 wheel World Champion, Lewis Hamilton, Britain has two 2 wheel Champions in 2018.

Johnathan Rea won the World Superbike (highly modified production machines) title and former Wolverhampton Wolves rider Tai Woffinden recently won the World Speedway Championship.

Well done to the three of them.
