Alexander Albon is officially confirmed as Formula 1 driver for 2019. The British Thai will get a place at Scuderia Toro Rosso as a teammate of Daniil Kvyat. Albon replaces Brendon Hartley, who has been dropped after a difficult debut F1 year. Albon drove in Formula 2, the highest climb up class, in 2018, and left a good impression. Albon won four races this season and ended up in third place in the championship. Toro Rosso chief Franz Tost said: "The way he is able to overtake many of his rivals in the races shows that he is ready and matured to race in Formula 1.

Scuderia Toro Rosso is looking forward to 2019. With Daniil and Alex we have two young, extremely strong and competitive drivers. There is now only one seat remaining on the F1 2019 grid, though Force India are expected to confirm Lance Stroll as early as this week.
