Red Bull Racing will be without an engine supplier at the end of 2021 and although that will take some time Now that Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen are leaving Haas, there's an opportunity for two Alexander Albon has been under considerable pressure at Red Bull Racing for some time now.

Red Bull broke for summer 44 points adrift of Ferrari, who hold second place in the standings behind runaway leaders Mercedes. The team sit third despite the brilliantly in-form Verstappen outscoring both Ferrari drivers over the first phase of the season and winning two races . Yet Gasly barely registered

Alex Albon has two races in which to demonstrate he deserves to stay at Red Bull next year, team boss Christian Horner said on Saturday.

Speaking ahead of qualifying at the Portuguese Grand Prix, Horner said the team wants the London-born Thai driver to prove they have no need to seek a replacement for 2021.

The team plans to raise its challenge next year, the last with Honda as engine suppliers, to combat Mercedes more directly in the constructors’ and drivers’ championships.

"He’s a popular member of the team, but we need two cars closer together in order to fight the Mercedes," said Horner. "That’s what we’ve got to do, that’s our target."

Alex Albon has been confirmed as a Red Bull driver for the 2020 Formula One season. He was promoted from sister team Toro Rosso after the Alex Albon replaced Pierre Gasly at Red Bull after the summer break this season. The Thai-British driver has scored points in all seven races since

Albon • Red Bull Racing . 64. I think the point I'm trying to make is the comparison shouldnt be before swamp/after swap, but each driver in the same team. the format you posted doesn't give enough data (Axis labeled) You could argue Albon ’s trajectory is slightly steeper vs Gasly in the Red Bull

Albon has struggled for consistency in his second year in Formula One with Red Bull after a mid-season switch from Toro Rosso last year, his rookie season.

"We want Alex to claim that seat and basically justify that there is no need to look at any other alternative than Alex," added Horner. "I think everybody in the team wants to see him do that.

"It felt like, in Mugello, he was starting to turn the corner and so on. He’s had a couple of difficult weekends, so he needs to bounce back here I think and particularly at Imola with a strong weekend from start to finish.

"So that’s our focus, that’s our objective.”

Albon has contributed 64 of the team’s total of 211 points this year with team-mate Max Verstappen dominating him in qualifying and race performances.

 Belarus: new demonstration against Alexander Lukashenko, targeted by an ultimatum from the opposition © Stringer, Reuters Demonstrators gathered again in Minsk, Belarus, to contest the results of the presidential election in early August 2020, on October 25, 2020. A new demonstration against power took place on Sunday October 25 in Minsk, the capital of Belarus. The opposition, led by leader Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, this month issued an ultimatum, demanding the resignation of President Alexander Lukashenko before Monday. If he refuses, the opposition promises to call for a general strike.

Alex Albon will remain with Red Bull in 2020 after being confirmed as Max Verstappen’s teammate for next season. The 23-year-old was promoted to Red Bull during the summer break in place of Pierre Gasly, and has gone on to finish in the top six in all seven of the races since. While he is yet to finish

Most of the race seats on the 2020 F1 grid are just about tied up, but there are still some question marks over who could partner Max Verstappen and Red

Horner suggested that if the team felt his form this weekend and at next week’s Emilia Romagna Grand Prix was below par they would look beyond the Red Bull stable for a replacement.

"Alpha Tauri are pretty settled with their drivers so, as I say, our preference is very much Alex, but if we had a look at a different solution, then obviously we would have to look outside of the Red Bull pool of drivers simply because there is not one available that we would look to put in.

"There’s some quality drivers, obviously, on the market, that could be unemployed for next year."

That list would include departing Racing Point driver Sergio Perez, his team’s 'super-sub' reserve driver Nico Hulkenberg and the two Haas men Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen who are departing the American outfit at the end of the year.

How to watch election night 2020: the definitive hour-by-hour guide .
Election Day is nearly here, and in a matter of hours we’ll find out whether this is the end of the campaign — or just the beginning of a protracted fight over who won. At 7 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time, which applies to all times mentioned here), we’ll start to see returns from Florida, Ohio, North Carolina and Georgia. Trump won all four of these states in 2016 and needs to win them again in 2020. The good news for viewers is that we should see relatively quick results in these key states, all of which are allowed to start processing (i.e., opening envelopes, validating signatures or even counting) their early votes and mail ballots before Election Day.
