Alexander Albon signed a multi-year contract extension to continue in Formula One with the Williams team.
The 26-year-old Thai driver joined Williams this season as a replacement for George Russell, who left for Mercedes.
Williams reported that Albon signed a multiyear contract, but without specifying the duration.
“It’s really exciting to continue with Williams Racing for 2023 and I’m excited to see what we can achieve as a team in the remainder of this season and next year,” Albon said in a press release.
“The team is pushing hard to progress, and I am really motivated to continue this adventure and keep growing together,” he added.
Albon has collected all the team points – three – this season with a 10th place finish in Australia and a ninth finish in Miami. Nicholas Latifi is the other Williams driver.
Williams director Jost Capito praised Albon’s work, describing him as a “terrific driver”.
“Alex brings a great mix of skill and insightful learning that will allow the team to be more successful in the future,” said Capito. “He is a tenacious competitor, he has proven to be a popular and loyal member of the team and we are delighted that he provides us with a stable base to continue to grow in this new era of F1 single-seaters.”
