In Germany, Alexander Elbon became a participant in several incidents and retired, and his partner went up to the podium. Former Formula 1 driver Christian Albers is confident that with such results the Thai driver will leave the team at the end of the year.
Christian Albers: “Alex is jeopardizing his credibility. Who else would say on the radio that his opponents are attacking him too hard? In this regard, he is just a weakling. I have said several times that this is simply not his sport. He lacks speed. In the end, this also bothers Max.
The difference between Verstappen and Elbon can be seen in their gestures. Albon is too soft. Such people can also succeed, but not in Red Bull. This company was never sure of him, but they learned a lot from the situation with Gasley, when they pressed him too hard.
Red Bull decides for themselves what to do with the budget. Perhaps a more experienced rider will require a higher salary. But I’m 99% sure that someone else will be Verstappen’s partner next year. ”
