Alex Albon will be replaced by Mercedes reserve driver Nycxk de Vries at the Italian Grand prix after a medical issue plagued the Williams star. Albon is out for the rest of the weekend after suffering appendicitis with Williams confirming Formula E champion De Vries will take his place. 

Williams said: “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. 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.” De Vries was already at Monza after enjoying an FP1 drive with Aston Martin yesterday. 

The Dutchman also stepped in for Lewis Hamilton in free practice earlier this season and has previously been tipped as the seven-time champion’s possible successor.
