The Thai driver, who lives in Milton Keynes, narrowly missed out on a top eight finish in race one, which would have put him on pole position for race two, but only landed two points for ninth.

Battling through the pack, Albon punted off in the latter stages, almost tipping over at the Bus Stop Chicane as he recovered to finish tenth.

Title rival Charles Leclerc scored 35 points and now Albon leads by 36.
