As a result of clashing with Lance Stroll in Saudi Arabia, Alex Albon has been demoted three places on the grid for the Australian Grand Prix next month.

During the closing laps of a dramatic Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, the two drivers collided at Turn 1 at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit.

Following the collision, the officials called both Albon and Stroll to Race Control, where they heard from both drivers before finding that Albon was “wholly or largely” to responsible for the event.

Albon’s driving licence has been docked two points as a consequence, and he will begin next month’s Australian Grand Prix three places behind where he qualifies.

Albon says he “had to go for it” in battle with Stroll

With Fernando Alonso, Daniel Ricciardo, Nicholas Latifi, Valtteri Bottas, and Yuki Tsunoda all withdrawing, the incident ended Albon’s race.

“We were trying to fight our way into the points at the end and I went for the move with Lance,” said Albon of his battle with the Aston Martin racer.

“He made a strong defence and, unfortunately, we made contact.

“We had to retire due to the puncture, but the points were almost there, and we had to go for it.”
