How Albon plans to fight his way out of Red Bull limbo

OPINION: Alex Albon has faced the media for the first time since he lost his Red Bull drive at the end of 2020 and dropped out of a Formula 1 race seat altogether. He has a history of bouncing back from setbacks, so here's what he must do to rise again

This time a year ago, Alex Albon knew his 2020 task was to save his Formula 1 drive with Red Bull.

What followed was a season that started with such promise - including the brief chance of a shock win in the season opener before that clash with Lewis Hamilton - but quickly became ever more painful. It ended on a high, and included two podium finishes (something Pierre Gasly didn't manage as a Red Bull driver), but the rise merely brought Albon back to where he'd more or less been.
