De Vries replaces Albon for Italian Grand Prix


Williams has announced that Nyck de Vries is to replace Alex Albon for the remainder of the Italian Grand Prix weekend.

"Williams Racing can confirm that, after feeling unwell this morning and seeking medical advice from the FIA and local hospital, Alex Albon is now undergoing treatment for appendicitis," read a brief statement.

"Following on from this, we can confirm that the team’s Reserve Driver Nyck de Vries will drive in place of Alex for the remainder of the Italian Grand Prix weekend. Alex is in good spirits and the team wishes him a speedy recovery."

As it happens, de Vries was in action yesterday, albeit at the wheel of the Aston Martin.

Taking over the Williams that Albon took to tenth yesterday, this is the perfect opportunity for Dutchman de Vries to show potential employers what he can do.
