The Williams driver expects the mix of cold temperatures and long straights at the Las Vegas street circuit will play to the strengths of the FW45.
Williams driver Alex Albon believes that the cold conditions at the Las Vegas Grand Prix will work in favor of his team. With most sessions scheduled late at night and temperatures between 5 and 10 degrees centigrade, Albon thinks the track layout and low temperatures will suit the strengths of their car, the FW45. He expects qualifying to be a challenge for everyone due to the tire performance in such low temperatures but believes it will work to their advantage. Albon also anticipates many overtaking opportunities on the long straights of the track. Currently in a battle with AlphaTauri for seventh place in the Constructors’ Championship, Albon urges his team to take inspiration from their recent performance in Mexico and seize any opportunities that come their way in the final two races of the season.
