Alex Albon extends Williams Racing contract

May 15, 2024

Williams Racing have announced a long-term contract extension with Alex Albon.

The British-Thai driver made his Formula One debut in 2019 with Toro Rosso before heading to Red Bull mid-season to replace Pierre Gasly. He then spent two years at Red Bull before he was let go in 2020.

Albon was signed by Williams Racing in 2022. In the 88 races he has started for them, the 28-year-old has delivered two podium finishes thus far.

The second Williams seat for the 2025 Formula One season is still up for grabs. 

Alex Albon commented:

I am incredibly happy to be remaining with Williams Racing and to continue working with such a talented and dedicated team of people. It has been a difficult start to the year but since joining Williams we have made significant progress together and I have seen the huge changes happening behind the scenes to take us back to the front of the grid. 

This is a long-term project that I really believe in and want to play a key role in which is why I have signed a multi-year contract. The journey will take time but I am confident we are building the right team to move forward and achieve great things in the years to come.

James Vowles, Team Principal, Williams Racing, added:

We are delighted to secure Alex’s long-term future with Williams Racing. He has exceptional talent, technical input and dedication to the cause and this is a huge vote of confidence in Williams and the journey back to competitiveness that we are on. Since joining, Alex has consistently demonstrated his ability to perform under pressure, and signing him for the long-term is a big piece of the puzzle of moving us up the grid.
