Red Bull’s Lawson Making an Impression as Ricciardo’s Substitute
Halfway through the Zandvoort weekend, Red Bull drafted in Liam Lawson to replace the injured Daniel Ricciardo. Since then, the New Zealander has been steadily making progress and impressing the team.
A Breakthrough Performance
In the recent Singapore GP, Lawson showcased his potential by securing a Q3 berth and finishing a remarkable ninth. This marked a significant milestone in his F1 career and caught the attention of Red Bull chiefs.
Lawson, who initially had doubts about stepping into Ricciardo’s shoes, is now gaining confidence with each race. His strong performance in Singapore has solidified his position as a worthy substitute for the Australian driver.
With the Japanese Grand Prix just around the corner, Lawson has established himself as a valuable asset to the Red Bull team. As he continues to impress, speculation arises regarding his potential future role within Formula 1.
Although the New Zealander’s current substitute role is temporary, there is growing belief that Lawson could secure a permanent seat in the near future if he maintains his impressive performances on the track.
