Bittersweet ending at the Austrian Grand Prix for Team Williams with Alex Albon pushing his way through the midfield to finish P12 after starting P15 while teammate Nicholas Latifi retired due to problems that hampered his race performance. 

Albon was battling for another top-ten finish as he got the experience the updated FW44, but two late passes from drivers on fresher tyres saw Albon finish in P12, but with positives to takeaway from today.

Albon put the vehicle upgrades to the test in a race, and although he did not manage to score points, still managed to enjoy Sunday.

Post-race he comments, "It’s exciting we’re running P10 at one point which i was happy about, our pace was much better than yesterday, with medium tyres we took a step up in corners."

He adds, "I was happy it felt like it’s our first proper race full race with new updates. We learned a lot from today where we’re strong and weak. Clearly, we’re still missing a little bit but still getting through the process. We weren’t fully away from the pack, we got in a little bit of a traffic with us and the McLaren's with the blue flags."

To continue, "Especially with the race today, I was having to push the car three-four tenths harder and i had to do it because that was the pace today. If we can get that pace out of the car, everything would’ve been easy. it was not a bad day"

When asked about how he felt about today's race and finishing higher compared to previous races, he says, "It was a genuine race. We were Q2 this weekend going P12 and in the rae we were holding our own. I felt content".

He concludes, "It was the first proper race with the new aero upgrade that we have and there’s a lot learnt from today so we can look at the data and come back stronger in France.”
