Alex Albon - Bio:

Alex Albon is one of the newest entrants to the Formula 1 paddock for 2019, signed for Toro Rosso to replace Pierre Gasly after the frenchman was promoted to the main Red Bull Racing squad.

Born in the UK but of Thai descent, Albon races under the Thai flag but grew up in the European and British racing scene. Success at an early age through the karting ranks lead to a Formula 2 seat in 2017 and by the end of 2018 he had signed to race in Formula E with Nissan e.dams.

As 2018 came to a close Albon was poached back from Formula E by Toro Rosso and the announcement that he would race for Scuderia Toro Rosso meant he would return to the Red Bull Junior Team programme.

In 2019 Albon will partner the returning Daniil Kvyat.
