Alex Albon recalls how he started in karts driving around in figure 8's with his dad on the stop watch, before his progression through the European open-wheel categories that now sees him drive for Aston Martin Red Bull Racing in Formula 1.
We chat to Alex about why he jumps back into a kart in the off-season with his Formula 1 mates to sharpen his reflexes & fitness. Alex chats about his obsession as a kid around the colour red and who he looked up to from a young age.
The UK based driver is fierce on the race track, but is very down to earth in this chat.
Big thanks goes to the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Team for allowing Alex to take part on Swapping Paint.
