“There were a few little obstacles on the way but I was delighted that we’re able to get a good outcome for Alex, for Williams, and for Red Bull.”
Wolff was supportive of the move to Williams, with Russell being promoted to the top team, and felt the 25-year-old was deserving of a spot on the grid.
“To be honest, I absolutely am supportive, even though it’s none of my business, of Alex Albon,” Wolff confirmed.
“He deserves to be in F1, he’s a great guy, and I’m happy for him that he’s in the car.
“He’s there, he didn’t get a place in AlphaTauri or in Red Bull, but he’s at Williams now and hopefully stays there for a long time.”
