alex albon: williams f1 driver released from hospital after complications from appendix surgery

Williams F1 driver Alex Albon has been released from hospital after he suffered a respiratory failure and was treated in intensive care following appendix surgery.

Albon was ruled out of last weekend’s Italian Grand Prix with appendicitis after feeling unwell on Saturday morning.

The 26-year-old had appendix surgery on Saturday at San Gerardo Hospital but suffered “post-operative anaesthetic complications” and ended up in intensive care and required assistance with breathing.

    Albon was taken off the ventilator on Sunday morning and transferred to a general ward.

    A Williams spokesperson confirmed to Crash.net that Albon was released from hospital on Tuesday and is back home in Monaco, where he will continue his recovery.

    Albon is focused on recovering in time for the next race in Singapore on October 2.

    He was replaced at Monza by reserve driver Nyck de Vries, who starred on his last-minute call-up to Williams.

    The 27-year-old Dutchman outperformed Williams regular Nicholas Latifi on his way to finishing in ninth place to score points on his F1 debut.

    2020-2021 Formula E champion de Vries is in the frame for a Williams 2023 F1 seat and has also been linked with Alpine.
