Albers out for next race?

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Christijan Albers, Spyker-Ferrari, Sepang, 2007Speculation is rife that Spyker are to drop Christijan Albers before the next race.

Test drivers Christian Klien (Honda), Marc Gene (Ferrari) and Narain Karthikeyan (Williams) have been linked with Albers’ seat at the N??rburgring in two weeks’ time.

All of them have at least one Grand Prix season to their names. But an outside bet could be Jos Verstappen whom team boss Colin Kolles originally planned to test at Spa-Francorchamps this week.

Albers has not compared favourably to rookie team mate Adrian Sutil and has blamed an inability to extract the most from the 2007 specification tyres. Sutil has out-qualified Albers 7-2 this year.

Last week Albers caused a potentially dangerous incident at the French Grand Prix when he left the pits before he was instructed to and tore the fuel hose out of the refuelling rig, dragging it out of the pits.
