Formula 1 driver Alexander Albon released from hospital

He was right in the middle of the horror crash involving pilot Zhou Guanyu.

Williams driver Alexander Albon has now been released from the hospital.

Williams driver Alexander Albon has been discharged from the hospital after a serious accident at the start of the Formula 1 race at Silverstone. “We are happy to be able to confirm that Alex has been given the all-clear and can leave Coventry Hospital,” the team said on Sunday evening.

The Thai had previously been taken to the clinic by helicopter “for a precautionary examination”. The world association Fia had already announced that Albon was conscious and had not suffered any serious injuries.

Albon crashed into the wall

During the dramatic scenes at the start, the Chinese Guanyu Zhou had a serious accident in his Alfa Romeo. Behind it, several drivers had tried to swerve (read more about this here). Sebastian Vettel pushed his Aston Martin into Albon’s Williams, who then spun, crashed into a wall and hit several more cars. The 26-year-old Albon had to park his badly damaged racing car on the side of the track and was first taken to the track hospital.

“Everything okay,” Albon tweeted in the evening for a selfie from Coventry Hospital. He is glad that his rival Zhou is doing well too. Now he has “already turned his eyes to Austria”. The eleventh race of the season will be held there next Sunday.
