Why Albon won't be "throwing around laptops" to gain a 2023 F1 edge

OPINION: At the Williams 2023 Formula 1 season launch, Alex Albon’s easy-going nature was again a point of focus. But does being “too nice” really matter in modern F1? Albon’s own expressions put that in an intriguing new light

“I hope not, they come out of the cost cap!”

Williams’s head of vehicle dynamics, Dave Robson, was relieved to hear Alex Albon has no plans to be “throwing laptops around” as part of his work with the Formula 1 team in 2023.
