Alex Albon insists he has not given up on Formula One.

After fighting like Max Verstappen‘s Red Bull teammate last year, the 25-year-old was not only replaced by Sergio Perez but referred to the DTM in 2021.

He’s now driving one Alpha Tauri– delivered Ferrari in the German touring car championship, but remains Red Bull’s official reserve driver.

After Perez won in Baku, the Mexican British-born Thai Albon thanked for his contribution behind the scenes.

“Alex puts so much work into the simulator and with the engineers. When I came here, I did not expect him to be so open, but he explained to me how the car works,” he said.

Albon says he appreciated Perez’s words, but insisted his contribution is “just part of my job”.

“I do not require any special recognition because I know what my role in the team is,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “But what I do is important, and I understand that.

“I love what I do and I give it 110 percent every day. If I did not, I would not have a chance to return.”

Albon’s DTM season started in Monza last weekend and he finished the two races fourth and seventh.

“Driving a GT3 car is fun, even though it has much less downforce and grip than I’m used to,” he told the Italian daily. “But overall, my impression is not bad.

“It is clear that even with my experience, I feel like a rookie in this series, where I compete with drivers who have been in GT for a long time.

“But it’s no secret that my goal is to return to Formula 1. Of course I want to win in everything I do, and this is no exception.

“But even though my life has changed, I have not parted ways with Red Bull, and I still actively participate in everything that happens in Milton Keynes and at the circuits. I do everything in my power to turn around. back to Formula 1, “Albon insisted.

“I have the opportunity this year to quietly observe what is happening from the side, which I think will be very helpful to me if I get the opportunity to come back.”
