F1: Albon Reveals He's A 'Practising Buddhist'

Alexander Albon has admitted he is a "practising Buddhist".
Although he was born and lives in London and has a British accent, the Toro Rosso driver has a Thai mother and he races under the flag of Thailand.

He laughed to the Dutch publication Formule 1:

I think a lot of people in Thailand don't know they have a Formula 1 driver.

Albon, 23, even admits he actively subscribes to the major religion of Thailand, which is Buddhism.

He revealed:

I go to the temple for every race weekend.

There is one in Wimbledon that I go to as often as I can," Albon added. "The sessions are a symbol of peace and happiness for me.

We sing songs and use holy water. In that respect it looks a lot like Catholicism. I believe in doctrine, meditation and mindset.

I feel that Buddhism is right for me. It gives me peace and helps me in a stressful race weekend.
