Formula 1: driver close to sensation – then bitter setback follows

Hardly anyone expected him in Formula 1 at the Canadian Grand Prix. Alexander Albon sensationally claimed first place with his Williams in the second qualifying segment and stunned the competition.

Alexander Albon was set to make a splash in Formula 1, but was suddenly slowed down at the Canadian GP. Blame it on rookie Oscar Piastri in the McLaren.

Formula 1: Albon brakes hard

So far, the season hasn’t gone to plan for Williams and Albon. The traditional race team only drives behind, a meager point has been recorded so far. The competition was stunned when Albon suddenly set the fastest time in Q2 in Canada and was the first to qualify for Q3.

Williams and Albon took a risk and started on soft tires early in Q2. While the competition still hesitated and stayed on intermediates, Albon was happily doing his laps on the red tire and getting faster and faster. When the other pilots finally reacted, the rain started again. Albon remained first, stars like Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) and Sergio Perez (Red Bull) were eliminated.

However, Albon’s winning streak was not to last. Instead of continuing its outstanding performance, it was brutally slowed down. Before he could even set a lap time, Oscar Piastri crashed into the McLaren and caused a red flag. As a result, the rain became heavier and better times were no longer possible.

German im Haas crossed the finish line just before the red flag and secured second place. However, he will only start from fifth place tomorrow. Find out why in our live ticker!
