Alex Albon: The car can be much quicker with the right balance

Alex Albon believes that Williams could have had much better results and a much better car if they had solved certain problems. “It’s a tricky one, because the car can be much quicker with the right balance to it,” Albon told Motorsport.com.
“It feels like at the minute, we’re quite restricted on performance just because of how we’re tied in at some places. Certain tracks really expose us, like Brazil or Mexico. But I know for a fact what we need to do to the car.
We’ve just got to find it, really. There’s no easy given that we’re going to just be able to say we need this in the car and we’ll be able to get it. There’s a lot of correlation that needs to be correct.
There’s a lot of different departments in the factory that we need to get moving and into the right direction together. And that’s going to be the aim for the winter”.
Albon wants to help his team and cooperate with everyone in order to achieve what they set out to do.
“My focus a lot of the time was really about surviving in F1, or focusing on that kind of performance side on my side,” said Albon. “Whereas now that I have that kind of stability and focus into the future, a lot of it is now turning its attention more to, OK, how do we bring this forward with the team? Where does the development need to go? “Of course I’ve got a new teammate as well.
I want us both to work together to speed up the development, and to do that, you need to get Logan also up to speed in terms of his development to be able to give the feedback and push in the areas that we need to push. “Two people pushing for the same thing, that really builds synergy. Teams start to have a good dynamic where you’re all pushing for the same thing”.
