“He’s a beast.”

That’s how IndyCar legend Scott Dixon has described fellow Kiwi Scott McLaughlin after the Supercars star’s disappointing debut in Florida.

The legend of Dixon keeps growing, with the 40-year-old claiming his sixth IndyCar series title with a third placing in Florida on Monday.

Dixon said the hardest part of a “crazy” season came when the racing was shut down because of Covid-19 just before the first race, plunging the teams into two months of “unknowns”.

F1 news 2020, Red Bull, Alex Albon, driver line up 2021, Daniel Ricciardo, Hulkenberg, Perez, latest, silly season

Published

Red Bull boss Christian Horner has insisted the team will not replace its another driver in the middle of the season, despite Alexander Albon’s poor showing since swapping over with Pierre Gasly last year.

Gasly made the step up Toro Rosso – now AlphaTauri – to replace Daniel Ricciardo at the start of last season but was replaced by British-Thai driver Alexander Albon midway through the campaign, with the Frenchman returning to Red Bull’s junior team.

However, while Gasly has been impressive in his bounce back, securing a shock maiden first grand prix victory, Albon has struggled and claimed just the one podium since.

He is currently down in eighth in the driver standings, nearly 100 points behind teammate Max Verstappen with Ricciardo, Charles Leclerc, Sergio Perez and Lando Norris all ahead of him despite being in slower cars.

Riders and paddock members have also been under strict instruction to remain within the circuit/hotel bubble when back-to-back races take place at the same circuit, with travel outside the bubble only allowed for “important business reasons”.
