Born and raised in the UK and having grown up with a former British racing driver for a dad (Nigel Albon), nonetheless Alexander Albon became only the second racer to represent Thailand on the F1 grid in 2019 (after Prince Birabongse Bhanudej Bhanubandh, or ‘B Bira’, in the 1950s).

That’s due to Alexander’s Thai mother and if we’re overlooking B Bira then Albon is the first F1 driver to race under the Thai flag in the modern era.
