Williams driver Alex Albon said he was feeling well for Sunday’s Austrian Grand Prix after being taken to hospital for checks following a big crash at Silverstone last weekend. The British-born Thai said he was back in the team simulator on Wednesday after resting for a few days.
“I feel pretty much back to normal,” he told the team’s website (www.williamsf1.com), explaining that he only had a few bumps and bruises. “I’m just taking it a step further with Patrick, my performance coach, and making sure I’m back in top form for Friday.
“Obviously it can seem quite dramatic when people go to hospital. But, to reassure everyone, I just went to do some precautionary checks. It’s really standard procedure.” Albon, who was thrown into the pit wall and across the track on the first lap by Aston Martin’s Sebastian Vettel, said he watched replays of his accident and attributed it to “one of those things”.
He added that the aero updates he first used at Silverstone appeared to be salvageable. Albon’s crash came seconds after a huge accident involving Chinese Alfa Romeo driver Guanyu Zhou who escaped unharmed after his car rolled over a wall of tires and crashed into a catch fence.
