After appendicitis and the subsequent operation on Formula 1 driver Alex Albon, there have been complications.

According to his Williams team on Monday, the Thai driver experienced “unexpected post-operative anaesthetic complications” which “resulted in respiratory arrest, a known but rare complication”. Albon was subsequently “re-intubated and transferred to intensive care”.

However, after the procedure and complications on Saturday, the 26-year-old made “excellent progress” overnight and no longer required mechanical ventilation on Sunday morning. Albon was transferred to a general ward and is expected to be able to return home on Tuesday. There were “no further complications”, it said.

Albon had missed the Italian Grand Prix in Monza because of the procedure. Substitute driver Nyck de Vries scored two points on his debut on Sunday. Albon’s “full attention is on recovery and preparation” for the Singapore Grand Prix later this month, Williams added.
