Albon went to the DAMS team for the 2018 F2 season and was much more competitive. He finished third in the driver’s championship with four wins and eight podiums, only seven points behind the second-placed Norris.

Red Bull closely monitored Albon’s progress and successfully terminated his contract with Renault e.Dams Formula E team.
