Williams Formula One driver Alex Albon has been added to the WME Sports agency’s stable of motorsport talent, which includes Sergio Pérez and Lewis Hamilton.

Earlier this month, the Thai-British driver signed a new deal with Williams until 2024. He becomes the second Red Bull-backed driver to join the WME Sports roster, following Mexico’s Sergio Pérez in April.

Despite driving for Williams, Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has previously confirmed Albon retains a link to the Milton Keynes-based racing outfit.

Since signing for Williams this season, Albon has picked up three points for the team, courtesy of tenth and ninth-place finishes  at the Australian Grand Prix and Miami Grand Prix respectively.
