Albon: Monza points crucial as Williams "won't really stand a chance" in next F1 races
Williams Racing performed well at the Italian Grand Prix, with their low-drag car excelling on the fast straights. Alex Albon successfully held off McLaren’s Lando Norris to secure seventh place, thanks to the car’s superior top speed. This strong result adds to Williams’ recent string of successful races and has helped them extend their lead over Haas in the standings. With Alfa Romeo and Haas struggling, Williams is in a good position to maintain their position until the end of the season. However, Albon cautioned that the lack of downforce in the Williams car may pose challenges in upcoming races like Brazil. Nevertheless, the recent progress made by Williams with their aerodynamic upgrades has made some of the upcoming races less daunting than initially anticipated. Albon believes that the team still has weaknesses, particularly in hot and high-degradation conditions, but they are better than they were last year.
