Alexander Albon: my Asian background helped me to move forward


Alex Albon says that Lewis Hamilton was the inspiration for him, because the world champion was the first black racer in the Formula 1.

The first time L. Hamilton became the world champion in 2008, when A. Albon was still racing karts. Twelve years later, the Thai descent debuted in F-1 with Toro Rosso team.

“Every athlete from my generation wanted to be as Lewis. I always got support from Thailand. My Asian background helped me to move forward.  I was going to the private school where I didn’t have any problems because of racism. I was racing in Europe and everything was normal”, said A. Albon.
