The 28-year-old driver's decision to commit to Williams for the foreseeable future has been met with enthusiasm from team boss James Vowles. 

"I am incredibly happy to be remaining with Williams Racing and to continue working with such a talented and dedicated team of people," Albon said.

"It has been a difficult start to the year but since joining Williams we have made significant progress together and I have seen the huge changes happening behind the scenes to take us back to the front of the grid.

"This is a long-term project that I really believe in and want to play a key role in which is why I have signed a multi-year contract.

"The journey will take time but I am confident we are building the right team to move forward and achieve great things in the years to come."

Vowles expressed satisfaction in securing Albon as the team's lead driver, highlighting the importance of continuity as Williams strives to regain competitiveness and position itself at the forefront of Formula 1.

"We are delighted to secure Alex's long-term future with Williams Racing," said Vowles.

"He has exceptional talent, technical input and dedication to the cause and this is a huge vote of confidence in Williams and the journey back to competitiveness that we are on.

"Since joining, Alex has consistently demonstrated his ability to perform under pressure, and signing him for the long-term is a big piece of the puzzle of moving us up the grid."
