Williams update on Albon after heavy practice crash


Williams has confirmed Alex Albon will miss second practice for the Australian Grand Prix but that he is uninjured.

The Thai-Briton finished the opening session at Albert Park 12th fastest despite having crashed out with a third of the 60-minute allocation to run.

Albon ran wide through Turn six and, having bottomed out on the exit kerb at Turn seven, was speared into the barrier, damaging the right side of his FW45.

But such was his speed at impact that the Williams skidded across the track and sustained more damage on the left-hand side of the car as well.

Ahead of FP2 in Melbourne, a Williams statement read: “Further to Alex’s accident in FP1, we can confirm that he will not participate in FP2 while we continue to assess the damage.

“Alex was uninjured in the incident.”
