The Prince And I: The story of the last Thai F1 driver


Recommended Posts

Alexander Albon will become only the second Thai F1 driver in history after joining Toro Rosso for next season.

Born in London to a Thai mother and British father, Albon joins the F1 grid at the same time as contemporaries Lando Norris and George Russell.

Interest in the progress of all three will be high, but whatever Albon's ultimate achievements, he will do well to match the CV of Thailand's only other F1 racer - Prince Birabongse Bhanudej Bhanubandh, or B. Bira as he was otherwise known.

Here are just six reasons why Bira, who raced in F1 from 1950 to 1954, lived his best life.
