Alex Albon Crash: Red Bull superstar faces another setback as he crashes his car into the board while driving in the Free Practice 2.
Alex Albon faces a huge setback during the British Grand Prix, as he crashed his car into the sideboard of the track while participating in the Free Practice 2.
The Thai born British driver was at a very high speed when he lost control of his car on the turn, and passed over the track and slide over the grass to hit the barriers.
The race engineer of Albon immediately informed his driver that the red flags have been shown, which means the track conditions are poor enough to warrant a stoppage in the race.
This crash immediately ended his run in the session and day, now the Red Bull’s crew has a long day ahead, as they need to fix things before the start of FP3 on Saturday

Is Alex Albon unlucky on the track?
This is the second crash Albon has faced in the season so far, first one being his clash with Lewis Hamilton for which the latter was even penalized.
Over here also Albon hardly looks at fault with him unexpectedly losing the control of the car. Despite this, he might end up above in the FP2 standings.
