‣ Albon recounted a special moment when Fernando Alonso asked for a pair of Albon’s own brand shoes.

A video popped up on Williams’ social media channels recently. It featured Alexander Albon and Logan Sargeant, revealing their favourite moments from the past Formula 1 season.

Albon had a standout memory. It involved Fernando Alonso, who made a special request. He wanted a pair of Albon’s own brand shoes.

The Williams driver was pretty chuffed about it. It’s not every day a legend like Alonso asks for your shoes, right? And it wasn’t just a personal win. The request likely boosted Albon’s shoe sales too.

Why? Well, Alonso didn’t just ask for the shoes. He shared a picture of them on Instagram. Talk about free advertising!

Williams Racing tweeted about it. Their tweet read, “Big man Fernando AA23s Watch @alex_albon and @LoganSargeant rate their social media in 2023!” It was posted on December 4, 2023.

There’s more F1 drama to read about, of course. A ‘heated discussion’ between Wolff and Horner sparked an FIA investigation. And Marko spilled the beans on why Hamilton and Verstappen will never be on the same team.

But that’s a story for another time. For now, let’s just appreciate the power of a good pair of shoes.
