UK Betting: Albon the fasted in Brazilian Grand Prix before crashing

Publisert January 4, 2020

The Grand Prix in Brazil came to a premature end during the outset of the practice sessions when Alexander Albon lost control on a damp track with slick tyres and crashed.

During Friday’s practice on November 15, 2019, the Tai-British racer crashed out at the Brazilian Grand Prix when he lost control of his vehicle at the last curve at the circuit of Sao Paulo’s Interlagos and busted the wing and the front suspension. This comes after he posted the fastest time during the practice session.

Afore Albon had just soared to the highest spot on the order list when his vehicle glided off the track and went straight into the barriers just before the ascending climb to the start-finish line. He took a substantial blow with the barriers and sustained crucial damage to his car.

Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc and Albon’s partner Max Verstappen also encountered some difficulties in the treacherous settings and both drivers lost control at the second turn, in spite of this, none of the two had any damage.

Verstappen swirled, nearly at the same time as Albon rushed off the track but he was able to carry on without crashing into anything. Leclerc faced a wobble.

One other race driver that confronted some difficulties on the race track that day was Daniil Kvyat driving for Toro Rosso. He also gave the untreated dry weather tires a try and started spinning at the first turn.

Unrepresentative times

As a result of the changing weather conditions on the Brazilian track the list of times were misleading, nevertheless, it showed that Albon was the fastest by 0.551 sec from Valterri Bottas representing Mercedes and both drivers from Ferrari Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel. Thai-British racing driver, currently driving in Formula One for Red Bull Racing. The 23-year-old British-Thai racing driver was recently promoted as a Red Bull driver for 2020 after the demotion of Pierre Gasly. Albon finished in the top six spots in each competition he has raced for the group and outscored Max Verstappen (team-mate) by 19 points.

The race kicked-off after heavy showers of rain, and as soon as the downpour stopped the track dried, nevertheless, the accidents that took place during the beginning of the session confirmed that it was not entirely suitable for slick tyres.
