Why Albon re-signed for Williams + Ferrari's Imola upgrades
Listen now
Scott Mitchell-Malm and Josh Suttill join Edd Straw to discuss Alex Albon signing a new long-term deal with Williams. They explain why Albon has re-signed with the team, including why he didn't have many realistic options elsewhere, and what the deal means for Williams. After that, Edd and the team look ahead to this weekend's Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix at Imola, and specifically to the significant upgrade home favourites Ferrari are bringing to the race. They also discuss why Charles Leclerc has changed race engineers ahead of the event, and the significance of Ferrari's two new hires, who have moved across from rivals Mercedes. And the episode is rounded out with some more questions from listeners, including ones on Andretti and on F1's tyre rules.
