Alexander (Alex) Albon (No 23) is a British-born, Thai, F1 driver contracted to Williams Racing in 2022. See Alex's driver... is an English-born and bred racing OK, so we all know what the driver is, right. I've always liked the description that F1 drivers are like... with a British dad and a Thai mum. Through his dual nationality, Alex was able to select which country he represented and he chose his mother’s homeland.
Alex is immensely proud of his Thai heritage and he is only the second driver to represent the Race tracks have long used flags as a way for marshals to communicate with drivers. The colour and meaning of..., the first being, Prince Birabongse Bhanudej Bhanubandh, or ‘B Bira’ raced in the 50s.
Alex saw an opportunity to promote F1 is the pinnacle of open wheel, single seater car racing and arguably the highest level of any motorsport globally.... in Thailand and give the people someone to root for. Alex visited in 2020 and was taken aback by his fame. “There were billboards and trains stickered up with my face on. I’m quite shy, so to see all that was a bit of a shock.”
Alex has spent time in Thailand recently, visiting an orphanage and entertaining the children.
