Alexander Albon he’s having the worst season since he hit the Formula 1. Despite getting quite a bit at the Tuscan Grand Prix this year, the Thai has never beaten his partner while the two are in competition. That is why critics they do not stop reaching their ears and the last result obtained was the straw that broke the camel’s back.
In the last hours, the 1997 World Champion Jacques villeneuve he had no mercy. The Canadian very cruelly criticized Alexander Albon’s performance this season and assured that he continues in his post due to the team Red bull protects it. The Red Bull heirloom, Charleem Yoovidhya He is of Thai origin, which is why Villeneuve believes that his nationality is essential in the position.
Villeneuve was champion in 1997 with the team Williams. This achievement was achieved in his second season in Formula 1, while in his debut he was runner-up. However, its continuity in the category was affected by the poor performance of the cars in which it was raised in the following years. In 1996 it was the last victory at the highest level.
“Albon is the worst”
The Canadian assured that Albon should not continue as the second driver of the team. “Albon is the worst second driver Red Bull has ever had. He doesn’t deserve his place on the team. He’s only there because of his passport, that’s why he’s protected ”, he commented. Villeneuve left Formula 1 in 2006, with the team Sauber.
In addition, he added that the nationality of Albon (Thai) is key to its continuity. “He is protected by the team management and is always trusted. But the truth is that he does not have the level that a Red Bull driver should have. He’s even getting worse, even though they keep trying to help him. Therefore, there is only one reason why the team can stay with the Thai, “said Villeneuve.
